About The Book

Johnny Cash cuts an iconic figure in music history. With his humble demeanour, sombre outfits and that distinctive deep voice, he crossed multiple genres with great success – gospel, rock and roll and of course country. Known for legendary songs about regret and redemption, such as 'I Walk the Line' and 'Ring of Fire', his life was a whirlwind of music, passion, addiction and absolution. This book takes an in depth look at the enthralling life of one of America's most influential artists.
