Synopsis: One of the most influential figures in American music and pop-culture, Johnny Cash is an icon to people of all ages. Steve Turner sifts the man from the legend and presents a picture of the often contradictory figure with unflinching honesty, getting close to the heart of the perfomer known throughout the world as the Man in Black. The Man Called Cash follows the star on his stumbling journey from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the drawing rooms of presidents. It details his self-destructiveness and brushes with the law, as well as his generosity and status as American icon - and keeping in view throughout the deep, enduring faith that informed his life and work. We see Johnny Cash not only as performer and recording artist, but also as neighbour, church-goer, fisherman, father, brother, husband and friend.

From the Inside Flap: One of the most influential figures in music and American pop culture, Johnny Cash was an icon to people of all ages. In The Man Called CASH, Steve Turner explores the legacy left by the man in black. With unflinchingly honesty, this biography reveals Cash anew, taking a candid look at the spiritual depth of the man who lived life as rough and gritty as his famous voice.

Cash’s rise to stardom skyrocketed in the 1950’s. Drug addictions, fits of rage, and shattered relationships marked his performances as a country singer. His craggy voice and haunting songs created music the world had never heard before. He was unafraid to explore the darkness within himself, and his lyrics shone with poetic depth. Delivered in a simple, direct style, Cash’s rough-hewn music mesmerized the young and the old alike.

Born to a devout Christian mother and a father prone to dark, destructive moods, Cash grew up in poverty and knew hardships. But his mother helped him nurture his music as well as his faith in God. She taught him to use his musical talent for the Lord--a conviction that kept Cash going during the darkest days in his life.

While this book chronicles the details of this unforgettable musician’s life—including his brushes with the law—Turner turns his keen pen toward unmistakable evidence of Cash’s deep, enduring faith in God as well as his humble, unpretentious love for his family and his wife, June Carter Cash.

Whether you’re one of the millions of Johnny Cash fans, a fellow Christian, or a pop culture aficionado, The Man Called CASH will inspire you with its heartfelt story of faith, hope, and redemption.
