Maverick. American Icon. Member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Television Show Host. Friend. Husband. Johnny Cash was all of these and more. But beneath each of these titles was one he carried with him from his humble beginnings in rural Arkansas and was always with him no matter what came later. Johnny Cash was first, last, and always a country boy.
Johnny Cash drove out to the Farm in Bon Aqua for the first time in 1972. He thought he was simply coming to appraise and sell another one of the properties his dishonest accountant had purchased with stolen money. What he did not realize at the time was that he was finally coming home.
Here, told for the first time, is the story of Johnny Cash and the Farm in Bon Aqua - the place that for the next 30 years would become, as he put it, his own personal Ground Zero. Includes never seen before photos as well as comments from friends and family members.
