Singer. Songwriter. With an unmistakable voice that resonates with millions, lyrics that speak volumes in the span of three minutes, and a career that lasted nearly five decades, Johnny Cash was peerless in his style and had a vast influence on country, folk, and rock music.The legendary "Man in Black" (who originally wanted to be a gospel singer) wrote his first hit record for Sam Phillips at Sun Records in the 1950s...and in 2003 turned a Nine Inch Nails song into one of the most deeply moving music videos ever created. A man of uncommon grace and innate goodness, Johnny Cash plied his gifts, fought his demons, and lived a life that was his alone -- enjoying one of the great love stories of the century with his wife, June, while somehow managing to leave a little of himself with people all over the world.In Cash: An American Man, fans of his music are now given a unique and personal glimpse into his life through hundreds of photographs, private letters, handwritten lyrics, his final interview given just three weeks before his death, and other astonishing memorabilia -- a one-of-a-kind collection fully authorized by the Johnny Cash Estate and created in cooperation with his friend, confidant, and lifelong fan, Bill Miller. Lavishly illustrated and designed by the award-winning team at Rare Air Media, Cash: An American Man is sure to be one of the most talked-about books of the year, and the ultimate tribute to one of the music's most enduring figures.

Bill Miller was Johnny Cash's friend, confidant, and lifelong fan, and is creating this collection in cooperation with the Johnny Cash Estate and Rare Air Media, a leading packager of bestselling and award-winning full-colour illustrated books about the world of professional sports and entertainment.From Publishers Weekly:
In one of many books coming out this year commemorating the "Man in Black," Miller, a longtime friend of Cash, offers this slim coffee-table-size scrapbook of photos and memorabilia of the legendary country singer. "He was my hero, my mentor, the godfather of my youngest son," Miller begins his introductory essay, which tells how he came to know Cash. Candid pictures are interspersed with photos of concert tickets, Cash’s Air Force uniform, album jackets, stills from live performances, and several with Miller throughout the years. He includes Cash’s handwritten lyric sheets, such as "Folsom Prison Blues" (over which Cash has outlined his hand), but items that stand out are a transcript of his last interview before he died (with Kurt Loder) and the poem he wrote longhand after June Carter Cash’s funeral.
