Johnny Cash and June Carter certainly passed their musical talents on to their son. 

John Carter Cash started following in his parents' musical footsteps early in life. Today, the only child of the iconic country couple is an incredibly successful record producer.

He played an important role in helping to produce both of his parents' records, including June's 1999 Grammy award-winning album Press On and Johnny's triple CMA Award-winning album American IV: The Man Comes Around

In total, John Carter has helped to produce five Grammy-winning albums, and has had a hand in producing material for many country greats, including George Jones, Loretta Lynn, and Willie Nelson.

As if his success as a producer wasn't enough, John Carter is also a talented country singer-songwriter. This is something that he proves through his 2013 performance of one of his father's most recognizable songs, "Ring of Fire."

"Ring of Fire" was released in 1963, and soared to the top spot of the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, also snagging the 17th spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Later, CMT would go on to name the song as the fourth greatest in country music history.

In John Carter's version of the song, it's clear that his voice is not as deep as his father's, but you can still hear a little bit of Johnny's signature rawness in it. He gets the chance to show off his instrumental skills as well, playing along on his acoustic guitar while a band of classic country instruments plays along with him.

You can watch John Carter's performance of his father's famous song in the video below. While you're at it, enjoy watching a live video of "Ring Of Fire," performed by The Man In Black himself.

We think that Johnny and June would be very proud of their son!

LYRICS BELOW

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring.
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire.

I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet.
I fell for you like a child,
Oh, but the fire went wild.

I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down as the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.
