Debbie Horton is an American guitarist, DJ and songwriter, who is the only woman to have ever played lead guitar for Johnny Cash.


Horton was born in Newport News, Virginia, United States.

During a concert near Baltimore, Maryland, Johnny Cash had heard that Debbie Horton was there and that she played lead guitar in a similar way to Luther Perkins. During the concert Cash called Horton out of the audience to join him on stage to perform a song with him. Cash sang "Big River", while Horton played lead guitar.
