About the BookFor more than 50 years, Johnny Cash has been entertaining audiences of all ages. His winsome approach to music, combined with a raw honesty, has endeared him to legions of fans all over the world.
Cash was as popular at the time of his death as ever was. His unique brand of country, folk, and rock music is currently being heard (and purchased) by young teens, as well as by his older fans, perhaps due to his steady presence on MTV, VH1, and CMT. A motion picture about Cash starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon will be released in 2004. Ring of Fire is a timely and fitting tribute to Cash in words and photographs. Cash was recently nominated for six MTV awards and 4 CMA awards for the same song-something that has never happened before.
This collector's piece consists of words of praise from country music's finest artists, as well as entertainers from film and television. The amazing photographs are from Les Leverett, the official photographer of the Grand Ole Opry for more than 30 years. Certain to become a classic, the book also contains a CD single of Cash singing his hit tune "Ring of Fire."
