Nov. 22, 2020 – John Carter Cash admitted candidly: “It was the fact that he thought he was going to die.
“He saw his whole life falling apart. His relationship with his first wife was destroyed. He hit rock bottom and crawled out of a cave.”
In 1967, he was arrested once again for possession of amphetamines and knew he had to turn his life around.
Lucky for Johnny Cash, his future wife June Carter – who he won a Grammy with for the duet Jackson that year – was there to help the star through his struggles. Their son, who was promoting the new album Johnny Cash and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, said: “My mother was there when he came out of that cave.
“He was gonna get back up, my mother supported him as a shoulder for him to lean on through his hardest times.
“But I really think it was the fact that he knew that he was going to die if he didn’t change that made him change in late 1967.”
Cash also rediscovered his Christian faith which he leant on during the highs and lows of the rest of his life.
