JOHNNY CASH

Legendary country music star June Carter Cash died 10 years ago today, leaving behind a large legacy and extended family, including her husband, Johnny Cash. When Johnny died not four months later, it was not hard to believe that he couldn’t live without June, his partner of 35 years. It was a marriage that thrived on June’s nurturing: as her stepdaughter, Roseanne Cash, said at June’s funeral, “If being a wife were a corporation, June would have been a CEO. It was her most treasured role.”

But the partnership extended far beyond mutual love and caring. Johnny and June Carter Cash maintained a strong working relationship too, recording and performing together throughout their marriage. Though both were remarkable solo artists, working together only increased their appeal – and the songs that feature both singers are some of the best of their careers.

June Carter and her family – mother Maybelle and sisters Anita and Helen – had performed with Johnny Cash for many years before June and Johnny married on March 1, 1968. Indeed, one of the couple’s greatest musical triumphs came in the year before they wed. Maybe a bit of romantic tension drove the fantastic collaboration that resulted in “Jackson.” The single hit No. 2 and won the couple a Grammy.
