Def Americans is a Johnny Cash tribute band. Johnny had always said that he is not bothered by fame and constant spotlight attention, "I go to the movies, to the grocery store, wherever I want to go. There'll be maybe one or two or three people, maybe, in a half hour's time that will stop me to talk. Which is fine, I've met a lot of good people that way. I refuse to be a prisoner of my celebrity." Challenging Cash's claim that he doesn't mind when fans interrupt him for autographs, Emery asks what he would do if someone interrupted his dinner. "Lay down my fork," says Cash.
