Johnny Cash is one of America’s most influential and iconic musicians of all time. In the mid-twentieth century, he was instrumental in bridging various genres with country music, including rock & roll, blues, folk, and gospel. His signature bass-baritone voice, brilliant songwriting, and forward-thinking tastes and politics made him one of the most popular artists of his era. For his contributions, he won numerous Grammy awards and has been inducted into several halls of fame, including those for Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel. In Cash: The Autobiography, the acclaimed musician recounts his life in episodes and journal-like excerpts. The work was co-written with Patrick Carr, but it is no less immersive in terms of its closeness to Johnny Cash. It was his second autobiography, published after a lifetime of wisdom and experience. It was also published just before his diagnosis with a neurodegenerative disorder and other various health problems that restricted his public events and performances in the final years of his life. Cash: The Autobiography is subsequently one of the last great entry points into Cash’s life and career. It was highly praised upon publication and remains a lasting part of his cultural contributions.

This first edition, first printing is signed by Johnny Cash on the publisher’s bookplate affixed to the front free endpaper. It is in fine condition. In the original black casing, very nearly fine with only bumping to spine ends. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine signed first edition of Johnny Cash’s autobiography.
