Johnny Cash was a poor sharecropper's son from Arkansas who became one of the most influential figures in American music. In the 1950s he embarked on a music career that took him to the heights of fame and wealth but also to the depths of addiction and despair. From these tensions Johnny Cash created haunting music, exploring the dark side of himself, and others, in a voice that sometimes sounded as old as the Grand Canyon. The Man Called Cash chronicles his career, his love for June Carter Cash, his struggles, and his triumphs. Johnny Cash put his soul into his music, drawing on his demons, his faith, his pain, and his joy to become, to many, the voice of truth.More
"An affecting mosaic of oral history, poetry, and memoir concerning Cash himself, but also the era in which his music took root and thrived." (Publishers Weekly)
"In what may be the most admirable of its many achievements, it's as good as Cash deserves." (Rolling Stone)

Great Story - poor reader
Really not necessary to listen to it a second time. A great review of his life.
His final years following his relapse
Needed more inflection in his voice, seemed very mechanical
His relationship with Billy Graham
A must read for any country music fan
