Johnny Cash Caricature 1966, shown here, age 34 with his Martin 0-18 Vintage Concert Body Acoustic Guitar in the musical film “Road To Nashville” (1966) directed by Will Zens.
Cash was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. Although primarily remembered as a country music icon, his genre-spanning songs and sound embraced rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of being inducted into the Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.
Much of Cash’s music contained themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. His signature songs include “Folsom Prison Blues”, “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm”, and “Man in Black”. He also recorded humorous numbers like “One Piece at a Time” and “A Boy Named Sue”; a duet with his future wife, June Carter, called “Jackson” (followed by many further duets after their wedding); and railroad songs including “Hey, Porter”, “Orange Blossom Special”, and “Rock Island Line”.
During the last stage of his career, Cash covered songs by several late 20th-century rock artists, notably “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails and “Rusty Cage” by Soundgarden.
In the mid-1960s, Cash reached a low with his severe amphetamine drug addiction and destructive behavior. The reason he looks so thin and gaunt in 1966.
Cash did not completely stop using amphetamines in 1968. Cash did not end all drug use until 1970, staying drug-free for a period of seven years. Grant claims that the birth of Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, inspired Cash to end his dependence.
Cash began using amphetamines again in 1977. By 1983, he was deeply addicted again and became a patient at the Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho Mirage for treatment. He didn’t get completely off drugs until 1992.
While hospitalized at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Cash died of complications from diabetes around 2:00 am on September 12, 2003, aged 71, less than four months after the death of his wife June.
