"The Man in Black"His story might be called "The Three Faces of Johnny" for being the only person to be inducted into three musical Halls of Fame — Country Music, Rock 'n Roll, and Songwriters'.Cash easily qualifies as a rags-to-riches case study, born at the beginning of the Great Depression to sharecroppers on the Mississippi River in rural Arkansas.He can be heartily commended for beating an addiction to drugs and alcohol, with the help of June Carter Cash — wife, nursemaid, companion, inseparable singing partner, soulmate, and opposable thumb.And he stands with few giants among the musical mortals of this earth.The early yearsJ.R., as he was sometimes called, was born in February 1932, to Ray and Carrie Cash, and was in the cotton fields of Dyess, Arkansas, by the age of five. In 1937, the family had to endure a flood of the big river, giving rise to Cash's 1959 hit, "Five Feet High and Risin'."His humble beginnings, drought and flood stories heard from other sharecroppers, World War II, the death of his older brother, Jack, in a mill accident in 1944, field songs and chants, church music, freight trains rumbling through the countryside, the Grand Ole Opry on the radio on Friday and Saturday nights; all were integral themes in John's poems and stories, which became the basis of his songwriting.John got his first guitar at age 10 and was scheduled to take voice lessons the following year. He knew what he wanted to do for a living.Following high school, Cash made a quick trip to Michigan to see if assembling cars could help him build a nest egg. It was not to be.Next up was the U.S. They were known as "the Landsberg Barbarians."When Elvis Presley released "That's All Right" in 1954, with the legendary Sam Phillips and his Sun Records label, Cash was champin' at the bit to get out of the service and get serious about launching a music career. Before that happened, however, he made time to marry Vivian Liberto, whom he'd met while in basic training in Texas.Early successesLate in 1954, Cash wangled an audition with Phillips, who advised him and his backup group, the Tennessee Two, to stick to CW music and drop the gospel portion of their repertoire. Phillips signed the trio, and then changed John's name to Johnny. He recorded "Hey Porter," which edged out Elvis to hit No. The tune earned Cash his first royalty check — $2.41.Two bright spots occurred later that year. The first of Cash's four daughters, Rosanne, was born. Second, Cash and group landed a 15-minute Saturday spot on a local Memphis radio station.In a December 1955 twist of fate, Cash recorded "Folsom Prison Blues" for Phillips — who had originally intended it for Tennessee Ernie Ford. He later hooked up with the "Elvis Presley Jamboree" tour, with Carl Perkins, among others.Number OneIn April 1956, Cash hit the big time with "I Walk the Line," when it sold more than two million copies, topping the CW charts and crossing over to score well into the pop Top 20.Cash continued his success into 1957 with Top-15 Give My Love to Rose and made his debut on Grand Ole Opry. In 1958, Ballad of a Teenage Queen and Guess Things Happen That Way, hit No. One.In response to Sun Record's refusal to allow Cash to record a gospel album and not increasing his royalties, Cash jumped to Columbia Records in 1958. His first release for them was the Top-Five "All Over Again."One of Cash's biggest hits, "Don't Take Your Guns to Town," made the crossover to the pop charts at the beginning of 1959. That was the year "Five Feet High and Risin'" made its showing, as did "Frankie's Man Johnny" and Hymns by Johnny Cash, his first gospel LP.The SixtiesWith Cash performing more than 300 concerts a year — he was said to have done more than 8,200 in his career — he turned to the medicine cabinet for a little "help" from amphetamines. June Carter, the wife of drinking buddy Carl Smith, would lend a helping hand.Carter co-wrote "Ring of Fire" with Merle Kilgore for Johnny, which was one of his all-time best sellers. He followed that up with "Understand Your Man," in 1964.Cash took a turn for the worse in 1965, however, when he was busted in El Paso for smuggling amphetamines across the border in his guitar case. Despite the release of Orange Blossom Special, the downward spiral continued when the Grand Ole Opry refused to let him perform. In 1966, Cash's marriage tanked. He moved back to Nashville and restablished his friendship with the now-divorced Carter.June Carter managed to help lead Cash out of the netherworld of addiction, and he converted to fundamentalist Christianity. His career was once again back on track with their duet, "Jackson," which won a Grammy, and "Rosanna's Going Wild," which cracked the Top 10. Early in 1968, Carter and Cash started down a fruitful road of holy matrimony that would last more than 30 years.It was also in 1968 that Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, an album recorded live, was released. That was followed up in 1969 with a sequel, Johnny Cash at San Quentin, which contained the enormously popular single, "A Boy Named Sue." In December 1968, Cash, along with the Carter Family, Statler Brothers, and Carl Perkins, released the fun "Daddy Sang Bass."Cash parlayed his renewed popularity into a weekly television gig, "The Johnny Cash Show" on ABC, which ran for two years. Johnny's first guest on that show was Bob Dylan.The Seventies, Eighties, and Nineties — hits and missesThe 1970s began with a flurry of activity, but the last half of the decade was spotty at best. Cash played the White House for President Nixon, co-starred with Kirk Douglas in A Gunfight (1971), and sang with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Single hits included "Sunday Morning Coming Down," "Flesh and Blood," and "Man in Black," which came in at Number Three on the charts.In the mid-1970s, Johnny's presence began to wane, although he teamed up with other star personalities to sing such duets as "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" with "Waylon Jennings." At that time, Johnny and June began to work with the Billy Graham Crusade and speak out on such social issues as Native American civil rights. Cash's autobiography, "Man in Black," was published in 1975.In 1980, Cash became the youngest person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. One highlight enjoyed by many was the quartet of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon, and Johnny, called "The Highwaymen," recording an album in 1985.A break with Columbia Records and continuing squabbles with Cash's new label, Mercury Nashville, drove Cash into virtual obscurity. The Highwaymen recorded a second album in 1992, which was commercially more successful than their first release.As health problems began to dog Cash in the Nineties, his concert and recording schedule were unavoidably reduced. He signed a contract with American Records in 1993, and, in a totally new direction, produced American Recordings, an album aimed at a younger, rock-'n-roll-type of audience. Although it wasn't a blockbuster at the retail level, it was critcally acclaimed and revived his career.The Highwaymen released their third album in 1995, The Road Goes on Forever, although some thought it should be called Don't These Guys Ever Go Away?. In 1996, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers supported Cash on his Unchained album, which earned him a Grammy for Best Country-Western Album.After an undistinguished couple of years, Cash released a three-disc retrospective with the eerie-sounding title, Love, God, Murder, which focused on the themes that dominated Johnny's work throughout his career.The endCash had one more album and a video left in him as the new millenium began. American IV: The Man Comes Around, appeared in late 2002, and featured a number of well-known singles: "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" (Hank Williams), "Desperado" (The Eagles), "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (Simon and Garfunkel), and Hurt (Nine Inch Nails). The cheeky little MTV video of Hurt surprisingly was nominated for Video of the Year, and the song won a Grammy (Best Short Form Music).Sadly, health issues took control of both Johnny and June. Cash's beloved wife died of complications following heart surgery in May 2003. He was 71.


The Tragic, Real-Life Story Of Johnny Cash

Kris Kristofferson once wrote a song about Johnny Cash that contained the line, "He's a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction." That's a pretty insightful way of saying that Johnny Cash, for all his strength and all the respect he commanded, was a man who had little trouble over the years succumbing to his temptations, testing the faith and respect others had in him. He was one of the greatest artists country music has ever produced, but at one time he took enough amphetamine pills to dry his throat to the point where he couldn't sing. He was a man who spoke often and lovingly about his family, but he ruined one marriage with indulgence and adultery, and tested the resolve of his second wife when he slipped back into old habits. He was a main of mountainous religious faith, but at his darkest moment, he is said to have crawled into a cave, never feeling farther from his God.

People cared about him because, at heart, he was a good man of prodigious talent and endless capacity for kindness to others, while simultaneously wearing himself down with drugs and alcohol. He lost people close to him, some early on, and survived a hardscrabble childhood marked by poverty and hard labor. He might have been that walking contradiction, but his life was one of breathtaking highs and unfathomable lows. This is the tragic, real-life story of Johnny Cash.


Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne says her dad’s affair with June Carter ‘seemed inevitable,’ painful for her mom

Pastor Greg Laurie recently published a book titled 'Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon,' which details the late singer's relationship to Christianity, ongoing battle with addiction.

Rosanne Cash is shedding light on what it was like growing up with her iconic father, Johnny Cash.

Rosanne, a singer-songwriter in her own right, appears in an upcoming 16-hour Ken Burns docu-series, titled “Country Music,” where she opens up about the music legend, his legacy and the ride her family took with Cash during his peak years in the 1950s and ‘60s.

“My childhood was chaotic, number one,” Rosanne, 64, told People in this week’s issue. “I understood from a really young age that [my dad] was an artist and that his mind worked differently. And … that scared my mother.”

Rosanne said Cash wrote his hit “I Walk the Line” about her mother Vivian Liberto’s constant fear that the charismatic musician would step out on their marriage.

“He wrote, ‘I’m gonna stay true,’” Rosanne says during Burns’ program. “Of course that wasn’t true.”

Rosanne was the eldest of four daughters and remembers her father as “the sweetest dad,” but noted there were difficult periods with her father in their household due to his battle with addiction.

Cash would begin a romantic relationship with June Carter, a member of Cash’s touring cast, which led to Liberto filing for divorce from the “Folsom Prison Blues” performer in 1966.

Cash and Carter would tie the knot two years later after Cash had gotten clean.

The "Composed" author admitted to the magazine that she never harbored any ill will towards Carter. In fact, she praised both her mother and Carter.

“I had two really good examples from women in my life,” Rosanne said.

“It seemed inevitable, though it was so painful for my mom,” Rosanne said of Cash’s affair with Carter. “My mom gave me this powerful sense of discipline, family, mothering and detail orientation. And June gave me this sense of expansiveness and how to live life as a performer.”

Rosanne ultimately followed in her father’s footsteps, but she initially only wanted to be a writer because she didn’t believe she had the voice of a singer. She also wanted no part of fame, based on the behavior she had seen from her father – most specifically, his constant absence in her childhood.

“I didn’t think I could sing,” she said. “And I grew up thinking becoming famous was about the worst thing you could do. You went on the road, you started doing drugs and got divorced and didn’t see your kids and everything fell apart.”

Rosanne said it wasn’t until Cash invited her to join him onstage for a duet of “I Still Miss Someone” that her resentment of her father turned around.

“He worked out all his problems onstage, and that happened with me that night with him,” she said. “It just all got fixed.”


Johnny Cash’s Daughter Shares ‘Heartbreak’: Finds Out Mom’s Black Ancestor Was Enslaved

“It feels heartbreaking,” Rosanne Cash admitted through tears after finding out that an ancestor of her mother, Vivian Liberto Cash — the first wife of singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, who both received threats from the KKK — was enslaved. This ancestor was Vivian’s maternal great-great grandmother, a Black woman named Sarah Shields, whom Rosanne learned about for the first time ever during an episode of the PBS show Finding Your Roots that aired in Feb. 2021. At the time, only Vivian’s European background had been known, and this discovery in her ancestry resurfaced thanks to a profile on Johnny’s first wife in The Washington Post on May 16.

Before the PBS episode, the world only knew that Vivian was reported to be of Sicilian heritage on her dad’s side, and German/Irish on her mother’s side. However, in the 󈨀s amid the Civil Rights Movement, Vivian had been the target of attention from white supremacists since they believed she looked Black. “My dad got into a public battle with the KKK and so I knew about that, and it was scary,” Rosanne said during the PBS special. At one point, Johnny even told the KKK in a statement that Vivian was white.

[Everett Collection] How did Rosanne go for so long without knowing this part of her family history? Well, the father of Sarah (Vivian’s great-great grandmother) was white and gave his daughter and her eight siblings freedom in 1848, according to The Washington Post. This led Sarah to marry a white man, and their children and descendants “were listed as white” during a time when the racist Jim Crow laws were enforced in the Southern U.S. &ldquoThat&rsquos likely why to this day, many of her direct descendants have no idea that they have any African American ancestry,&rdquo historian Henry Louis Gates Jr., who hosts Finding Your Roots, explained to Rosanne.

Henry’s research also led him to discover a census from 1870, which revealed that Rosanne’s great-great grandfather — a man named Lafayette Robsinson — was “mixed-race.” Upon learning this, Rosanne recalled the long-running rumors of her mother’s background and said, “So, it was, at least, a small part true.”

[Shutterstock] Johnny was a 19-year-old Air Force radio operator when he met Vivian, then 17 years old, at a skating rink in San Antonio, Texas (where she grew up) in the summer of 1951. They soon fell in love and tied the knot in 1954. In addition to Rosanne, Vivian and Johnny welcomed three other daughters: Cindy, Kathy and Tara. Vivian filed for divorce in 1967, and Johnny went on to marry singer June Carter Cash. The “You Are My Sunshine” singer passed away in 2003, and his first wife died not long after in 2005.


He bought his first guitar in Germany

Cash’s oldest brother, Roy, was the first Cash to make a small splash in the music industry. Roy started a band called the Dixie Rhythm Ramblers, who for a time had a show on radio station KCLN and played all around Arkansas. Cash’s family also regularly sang spirituals together, either at the family home or at his grandparents’ dinner table. Cash himself sang at school and in church, even once winning a talent show and the $5 that went with the victory.

Despite his obvious interest in music and talent for it, Cash wouldn’t get a guitar and start seriously writing songs until he joined the Air Force and was shipped away to Germany. His guitar, purchased in 횾rammergau, cost about the same amount he𠆝 won in that talent show years before. Soon, he was playing with a bunch of like-minded servicemen in a ragtag band branded the Landsberg Barbarians. He began to write songs, too, including the first version of his first big hit, 𠇏olsom Prison Blues.” Although he would make half-hearted attempts to work a “real” job on his return from the service in 1954, mostly to support his new wife and children, Cash had found his path in life and pursued it from then on.


In the 2005 biopic I Walk the Line, Johnny Cash was depicted by Joaquin Phoenix as being relentless in his pursuit of June Carter, who helps him overcome his addiction to drugs and alcohol. According to his first wife the opposite was true. Vivian Liberto married Johnny Cash in 1954 and together they had four daughters, Rosanne, Kathy, Cindy, and Tara. In 2007, Vivian&rsquos story was published in I Walked the Line: My Life with Johnny, in which she described June Carter as pursuing Johnny for years, as well as supplying him with the amphetamines to which he was addicted. According to Vivian&rsquos account, June was addicted to amphetamines herself. Vivian claimed that June once told her, &ldquoVivian, he will be mine.&rdquo

Vivian remarried after her divorce from Johnny Cash became final in 1967, and died in 2005 before her manuscript was published. In her book she expressed regrets for not having worked harder to save her marriage to the star, and her assertions regarding the threat presented by June Carter have been supported by her daughters in subsequent interviews. Johnny and June had a son together, John Carter Cash, who confirmed Vivian&rsquos description of June as a drug user in a book in 2007, later telling Reuters, &ldquoShe maintained strong control of her addiction&rdquo. Johnny Cash entered rehab for drugs and alcohol several times during his life, though June Carter Cash did not.

Explore Johnny Cash’s Tennessee Ranch-Turned Museum

Johnny Cash may have come from Arkansas, but for years his heart was in Tennessee. He performed and recorded in Nashville and Memphis, and he made his home on a little ranch in Bon Aqua. Now, after years of lying empty, the country star’s old home is now open to the public as the Storytellers Museum.

Cash didn’t come across the 107-acre ranch by traditional means. Back in the 1970s, he discovered that his accountant had been embezzling from him and buying up property all around the country. After Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, got wise, they forced him to sign over all the real estate to them. In the end, they sold all but one: the Bon Aqua ranch, Juli Thanki reports for the Tennessean.

"For me in '72, it was love at first sight . a place that moved into my heart immediately, a place I knew I could belong," Cash wrote in his autobiography. "This is a great place for pottering. I can cook my own food, read my own books, tend my own garden, wander my own land. I can think, write, compose, study, rest and reflect in peace."

For years, the Cashs called the ranch home, and would often perform at a nearby general store. However, after Johnny Cash’s death in 2003, the house was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Almost a decade later, Brian and Sally Oxley decided to buy it, Amah-Rose Abrams reports for artnet News. Curiously, up until just a few years ago, Brian Oxley had never heard Cash’s music. However, when he discovered the late country musician’s “American Recordings,” he fell hard for the musician. After hearing that Cash’s ranch was for sale in 2015, they bought it for $895,000—arguably a steal, considering how much history they discovered at the site.

All sorts of memorabilia was left behind by the Cash family, including several guitars and a VHS tape with a recording of a performance at a nearby convenience store where Cash regularly played low-key and free shows. The couple also discovered a car whose design was inspired by the classic song “One Piece at a Time.” The house itself is full of history, with bullet holes in the wall left from the first time Cash taught his daughter Cindy how to shoot, Thanki reports. Later, when the convenience store went up for sale too, the Oxley purchased it as well.

Now, the Oxleys have transformed Cash’s home and venue into the Storytellers Museum. While the outside is simple, the museum houses the Oxleys' eclectic collection of Cash artifacts, from handwritten letters to song lyrics for "Saturday Night in Hickman County," a song inspired by his regular performances at the Bon Aqua convenience store. In keeping with Cash’s tradition of performing for locals, the museum will continue hosting concerts and performances at the old shop, Abrams reports. 

"I can feel his presence here so strongly," Cindy Cash tells Thanki. "Dad would have loved this."

Station HYPO

Johnny R. Cash was born on February 26, 1932 in Kingsland, Arkansas to Ray Cash and Carrie Cloveree. He was the fourth of seven children.

In 1950, at the age of 18, Johnny Cash did what many young men of the time did, he enlisted in the United States military, specifically the Air Force, and was shipped off from his home in Arkansas to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX. While there, he met what would be his future first wife Vivian Liberto at a roller rink, but the couple wouldn’t be married for another four years. After dating Vivian for only three weeks, Johnny received his deployment papers and was shipped off to a base in Landsberg, West Germany for a three-year tour. The base served as one of the forward outposts in the outbreak of the Cold War the world found itself in after World War II in the face of Soviet aggression.

Johnny’s enlistment period, he rose to the rank of Staff Sargent and became a crack Morse Code Operator in a Security Service unit. Because Cash showed such skill at deciphering Morse Code, he was put in a prominent seat at his Landsberg post to listen in on Soviet communications.

The Landsberg, Germany experience was an important marker in the life of the Man in Black. During his three years at the base, he exchanged hundreds of love letters with Vivian Liberto, and formed his first ever band, The Landsberg Barbarians. Though many people attribute Johnny Cash’s inspiration for writing one of his biggest hits “Folsom Prison Blues” to seeing the infamous prison first hand, he actually wrote the song while stationed in Landsberg, and seeing the film Inside The Walls of Folsom Prison. Johnny felt like he could relate to life in the clink because of his top secret military position. The sensitivity of his job necessitated that he couldn’t talk to anyone about what he did specifically, not even his love Vivian back in Texas, and Johnny’s off-base privileges were severely limited.

But all this secrecy also led to one of Johnny Cash’s biggest accomplishments. While manning his post on March 5th, 1953, Staff Sgt. Cash transcribed what would be a very important communique from the Russians. At the time, Soviet Premier Leader Joseph Stalin was in very poor condition. As the man at the head of the Soviet Empire, Stalin’s health status was of critical importance to the United States intelligence community and all Western Powers. While monitoring the Soviet Morse Code chatter on March 5th, Johnny Cash became the very first American to hear of the death of the Soviet supreme leader. Cash then relayed the important info to his superiors, and the rest is history.

Oh course, Johnny Cash couldn’t tell anyone of his accomplishment until years later because of the top secret nature of his job, and eventually the fact would just become a footnote of history to Johnny’s more famous musical efforts. Though Johnny Cash’s mastery of Morse Code and the Stalin death intercept may not seem to have much to do with his music on the surface, Cash’s ability to pick out important rhythms and tones in sometimes garbled, busy, and concealed communications lent later in life in his ability to find that unique sound that would speak to America, and eventually the world, in a language everyone could understand.
