John Carter Cash Recalls Making Music with His Legendary Father Johnny Cash

John Carter Cash has always been a very proud son to his father, Johnny Cash – especially on how the music icon showed incredible resilience and strength as his life came to an end.

John Carter Cash remembered his father confined to a wheelchair – fighting pneumonia and even barely breathing – during the last days of his life. Despite that, John Carter Cash said his father, Johnny Cash, showed nothing but incredible strength as he would make his way to the studio and make music. He used all the remaining strength there is – even creatively “quadrupled his efforts” – for the recording of what would later turn into his posthumous releases in American V: A Hundred Highways.

John Carter Cash revealed that his father’s final album was recorded after his mother, country superstar June Carter Cash, had passed. And he would recall the frailty in his father’s voice during the recording, as well as the sadness and the painful loss he’s been battling with. Then he added that at the same time, the more you will listen to it, you will hear the definite power and brilliance that help him to keep going.

Clearly, among Johnny Cash’s children, John Carter Cash is the most candid towards his late father. In fact, the 51-year-old has shown a more personal side of his legendary father in his own memoir, House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, Johnny Cash.

John Carter Cash believes his father “would still be making music today if his body hadn’t given up.”
