Early Life of Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash was married only twice in his lifetime. While training for the Air-Force in 1951, he met Vivian Liberto in a roller-skating rink. They dated for three weeks, until cash was deployed to Germany, where they exchanged love letters for the next three years. A month after Cash returned home, the two were married on August 7th, 1954, in St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church in San Antonio. The two would divorce in 1966. In 1968. thirteen years after meeting at the Grand Ole Opry, Johnny Cash and June Carter were engaged. The two were married in Franklin, Kentucky, on March 1st, 1968.

Music Of Johnny Cash
Much of Cash's music echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. Some of his most famous songs include “I Walk The Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm”, and one of my favorites ,”Folsom Prison Blues.” The song I chose for the project was his cover of Soundgarden’s song “Rusty Cage.” To Johnny Cash, this song was him breaking free of his addictions to alcohol and drugs. Some of the lyrics include,”I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run.” This means that he is removing drugs and alcohol from his life and breaking away from those bad habits.
