"The hit song that he had written to assure her that he'd always be by her side was threatening to push them apart."
Quote from Robert Hilburn in his book Johnny Cash--The Life
In 1956 Johnny Cash recorded this song "I Walk the Line" on the Sun label. He wrote the song as a thought of his love and to reassure his wife of this love.
The popularity that came to him because of this song often put him in otherwise situations.
I can remember sitting in the audience in 1956 (I'm fourteen years old) at the Grand Ole Opry and seeing him perform this song. It was a smash hit and sent his popularity thru the roof.
You know popularity can often be a hard rascal to handle.
Sometimes what we create to do what we think it will do....it can end up doing the opposite.
