Johnny Cash: The Life in Lyrics

In this essential volume, the life of the Man in Black is revealed by his lyrics alongside rare photographs and ephemera. 
 
Johnny Cash was, of course, one of the most beloved and influential country-music stars of all time, having composed more than six hundred songs and sold more than ninety million records. He received twenty-nine gold, platinum, and multiplatinum awards for his recordings, and he married into one of country music's founding families when he wed June Carter of The Carter Family, who hailed from this hills and hollers outside Bristol, Virginia.

Perhaps more than any other American artist, Cash spoke to the soul of the nation as well as to the triumphs and challenges of his own life, and these pages deliver a profound understanding of Johnny Cash as a man and an artist. 
 
This is the first time Cash’s fifty years of songwriting have been collected anywhere. This essential book includes lyrics to 125 songs and the stories behind them, along with rare visual material and remembrances from Cash’s son, John Carter Cash. It explores this unique artist's range as a poet and storyteller, taking readers from his early life and first successes through periods of personal challenge, activism, and faith.

This hardback book was curated by Mark Stielper, an historian who has studied Cash's career and family for decades.
