Dear Ms. Go,
Thank you for question to HistoryHub. You should contact The Center for Legislative Archives. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org. They would know where Mr. Cash's testimony before the Senate Subcommittee On National Penitentiaries would be. We found one possibly relevant series on our online catalog: Subject Files of the Subcommittee on National Penitentiaries of the Committee on the Judiciary during the 92nd through 95th Congress.
Please contact The Center for Legislative Archives for more information regarding these records. Best of luck in your research!

Hi Kelly! While we do have print hearings in our holdings, I can find this one for you online.
Johnny Cash testified on July 26, 1972 before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on National Penitentiaries during a series of hearing held from July 25-27, 1972. The hearings were published in the volume: Parole Legislation. It looks like his testimony begins on page 71 and continues through page 88.
If you would like to view a print copy of this hearing, you can check your local Federal Depository Library. The SuDoc number is Y4.J89/2:P24.
For future reference, the most comprehensive resource for locating congressional hearings is the full version of ProQuest Congressional, a paid subscription database. You may have access to it through a local academic or law library.
There are also a number of free online sources that have digitized copies of congressional hearings: Hathi Trust, Google Books, the Internet Archive, the Library of Congress and FDsys. The Law Library of Congress is also working on a pilot project to digitize their collection of congressional hearings.
