Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash has been an icon in the music world. Now comes a collection of his as-yet-unpublished poems adding to his already prolific number of original songs: Forever Words: The Unknown Poems.
In these words, we see the world through Cash’s eyes, his reflection upon his own interior reality, frailties and strengths alike. The poetry reveals his depth of understanding; both of the world around him and within. Coming from purely American and gospel traditions of song writing, Cash reflects upon love, pain, freedom, and mortality.
John Carter Cash, who has been involved in music all his life, is an accomplished and award-winning record producer as well as a singer-songwriter and recording artist. The only son to Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, he is the author of three children’s books, and a biography of his father, one of his mother, and a fantasy novel, Lupus Rex.
