9780060727536: Cash: The Autobiography

This fascinating autobiography of the country music legend recounts the highs and lows, the struggles and hard-won triumphs of his remarkable life.

The story takes us from Johnny Cash’s childhood on an Arkansas cotton farm to his early years at Sun Records. We read of his life on the road and meetings with, and performances for, world leaders. There is also the darker side of his life: the years of addiction to amphetamines and pain killers, a suicide attempt and the spiritual awakening that pulled him through.

He looks unsparingly at his turbulent past, but remains a man of honesty, humility and humour. His memoir reveals his friendships with Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Billy Graham.

Review:

‘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

From the Back Cover:

The songs and music of Johnny Cash have moved audiences worldwide for over three decades. In this fascinating autobiography the country music legend reveals the personal pain and turmoil that lay behind the incredible success of his professional career.

In his own words Cash reflects unsparingly on his turbulent past. He tells of his harsh childhood on the cotton farm; life on the road; friendships with Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan; the years of addiction to amphetamines and painkillers; his attempted suicide and the profound spiritual awakening which pulled him through.

Since signing his 1955 contract with Sun Records, Johnny Cash has released a staggering 450 singles, 1500 long play albums and 300 CDs. His recordings have been released in twenty-six countries. In 1996 he received a Kennedy Center Lifetime Achievement Award and released his American recordings album, 'Unchained'. He lives in Tennessee with his wife of over thirty years, June.

'I've never met a man who combined spiritual depth, musical ability and international fame with such grace, charm and humility as Johnny.'
BILLY GRAHAM

'The voice we hear from these pages rings with clarity, patience, fortitude and wisdom.'
EVENING HERALD

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 221 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. He was the Man in Black, a country music legend, and the quintessential American troubadour. He was an icon of rugged individualism who had been to hell and back, telling the tale as never before. In his unforgettable autobiography, Johnny Cash tells the truth about the highs and lows, the struggles and hard-won triumphs, and the people who shaped him. In his own words, Cash set the record straight -- and dispelled a few myths -- as he looked unsparingly at his remarkable life: from the joys of his boyhood in Dyess, Arkansas to superstardom in Nashville, Tennessee, the road of Cash s life has been anything but smooth. Cash writes of the thrill of playing with Elvis, the comfort of praying with Billy Graham; of his battles with addiction and of the devotion of his wife, June; of his gratitude for life, and of his thoughts on what the afterlife may bring. Here, too, are the friends of a lifetime, including Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, and Kris Kristofferson. As powerful and memorable as one of his classic songs, Cash is filled with the candor, wit, and wisdom of a man who truly walked the line. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780060727536

Book Description HarperOne. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 1.0in.At 65, the man whos 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 Songwriters 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. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
