She started singing at the age of ten in 1939 with the legendary Carter Family, which included her mother Maybelle Carter.
Versatile with guitar, banjo, harmonica and signature autoharp, June was also an actress, songwriter and dancer; others would remember a comedian. She stands out in the film The Apostle; being the second and lasting wife of Johnny Cash; and a distant cousin to President Jimmy Carter.
Virginia was her birth home.
June Carter Cash didn't last forever as her verve and spirit seemed to predict. She passed away only a few months before The Man in Black in 2003.
