9780061013577: Cash: an 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 his 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.

Includes photos previously unpublished.

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.'
