Five years ago today Johnny Cash left this earth. He was 71. He made his mark in music, movies and television. The man in black was bigger than life. His deep voice was unmistakable. He was a star. However, as it has been said so many times, stardom comes with a price. Cash had his demons. He struggled with drugs, alcohol and depression. He wasn’t perfect. But he was honest with the world. He was open about his shortcomings and used the stage to share his faith in Jesus. Cash suffered from many health problems later on in his life, but he likely died of a broken heart. His love for June Carter Cash was so great he lived only four months after she died.
