It’s been almost 12 years, and we can still feel pain in our hearts over the passing of the legendary Johnny Cash.

Johnny Cash is arguably one of the most iconic and influential artists in country music history. He has created some of the greatest songs of all time, including “I Walk The Line”, “Ring Of Fire” and “Folsom Prison Blues”.

In this rare final interview, Cash looks back on his life. He recalls his forty-year career, and discusses his accomplishments, his wife, and staying true to himself- just being Johnny Cash, nothing more nothing less.

When asked about how he dealt with the passing of his wife, June Carter Cash, a teary Cash says, “She was my great encourager.” He went on to discuss June’s final wish, saying,

She told me in the hospital, to go to work. I said, ‘What are you talking about’, and she said ‘Don’t worry about me, go to work’. And at the funeral I could almost here her saying ‘Go to work’. Three days after the funeral, everybody said ‘You’re crazy’, but three days after the funeral I was in the studio. And I stayed in the studio for three weeks.

Ok, our hearts have melted.

As the interview continues, Cash remembers his life, achievements, and the people he has met along the way. When asked about his faith and the future of his life, Cash calmly said, “Oh, I expect my life to end pretty soon… I have great faith, I have unshakeable faith, I’ve never been angry at God, I’ve never turned my back on God. All of the good things in my life come from Him.

He finishes his interview with the powerful words, “We all hope to go to Heaven.

Johnny Cash has left such a mark on all of us, and his influence will forever be felt. We’re sure he’s smiling down upon all of us!

Johnny, you will always be remembered. R.I.P.
