At 65, the man who's been called the "quintessential American troubadour" reflects on his extraordinary life and musical career.
He is the only entertainer in history in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame a distinction befitting a man who sang with Elvis Presley in the 1950s and with U2 in 1995. From his wild years of addiction to his loving faith in Christ, Johnny Cash embodies contradiction and it is that universal inner struggle, communicated with candor and simple wisdom, that has endeared him to audiences from all realms of experience. Now Cash celebrates 65 years and his remarkably varied career in this riveting autobiography, telling it straight in his own words.
Cash reveals the inside story, from his childhood years on an Arkansas cotton farm and his well-publicized battle with drugs to his life-saving spiritual awakening, his hit TV show years and his countless musical successes and honors. Cash reflects on the family that is central to his life and recalls associations with fellow greats Jerry Lee Lewis and Bob Dylan and and with presidents from Nixon to Clinton. Full of never-before-published photos, his epic story offers the unique perspective of a legend reflecting on his life and a fascinating blend of passion, honesty, humor, insight and inspiring faith. With enormous appeal for old fans and new, Cash captures the voice of this true American icon.
