‘I’ve never met a man who combined spiritual depth, musical ability and international fame with such grace, charm and humility as Johnny.’
Dr Billy Graham
Country music legend Johnny Cash reveals the pain and turmoil of his remarkable personal life in this fascinating autobiography. He is the ‘Man in Black’ – an icon of rugged individualism whose own dramatic story resonates in his music. Cash recounts the tragedies and triumphs, the struggles and hard-won victories that have carved his life.
Cash’s extraordinary career spans four decades and a variety of musical styles, including country, folk, gospel and rock. In this book he tells of his life- long friends including Willie Nelson, Roy Orison, Bob Dylan – and Dr Billy Graham, who inspired Cash’s Christian faith.
In his own words, Cash reflects on the mosaic of his life with honesty, humility and humour. He tells of his childhood on the e cotton farm; his exceptional thirty-year marriage; his family; the beginnings of his musical career; his life on the road; the years of addiction to amphetamines and pain-killers; his attempted suicide and the profound, life-saving spiritual awakening that pulled him through.
