Everybody Loves a Nut is the 23rd album by Johnny Cash, originally released in 1966. The album consists largely of humorous novelty songs. The album's cover art was created by Jack Davis.
Cash would reprise a number of the tracks on this album in later venues such as TV performances, and live versions of "Dirty Old Egg Sucking Dog" and "Joe Bean" would be featured on his later live album At Folsom Prison. Cash also performed "Dirty Old Egg Sucking Dog" a decade later during an appearance on The Muppet Show. "Please Don't Play Red River Valley" would also later be performed by Cash on his TV series as a musical comedy routine with his wife, June Carter Cash.
"The Singing Star's Queen" features lyrics poking fun at Cash's friend and fellow performer Waylon Jennings. "Joe Bean" incorporates the lyrics and melody of "Happy Birthday to You".
The song "Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog" was used in a 2012 commercial for the Volkswagen Jetta.
