As a son of two country music icons, John Carter Cash proves talent does indeed run in the family.
Today, John Carter keeps their legacies alive by continuing to share and sing their songs, including Johnny’s “Ring of Fire.”
“Ring of Fire” was co-written by June and Merle Kilgore. It was first recorded by June’s sister, Anita.
Johnny went on to record his own version. He added the now-iconic sound of the mariachi horns to his recording.
Many years later, John Carter sang “Ring of Fire” during John McEuen’s 70th birthday party in December 2015. He channeled his father’s spirt as he delivered his rendition of the classic song.
