Author(s): Michael Streissguth
This is the definitive biography of music legend, Johnny Cash by the leading authority on the star. This major new biography will fully and engagingly document the career of the late country legend Johnny Cash (1932-2003), an artist who ranks with Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra as one of the 20th century's major singers. It will be the first full-length biography of Johnny Cash since Christopher Wren's was published more than 30 years ago. Michael Streissguth, author of Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison and Ring of Fire is the leading authority on Cash, and is well positioned to make this the definitive book on the star. Propelling the work will be the author's unrivalled knowledge of his subject as well as thorough research, including interviews with individuals close to Cash throughout his life, visits to key locations (Arkansas, Memphis, Nashville), and examination of archives, such as those of Sony Music and the Country Music Foundation.
