Johnny Cash (1932-2003) was an influential country song writer and singer from Kingsland, Arkansas, who sang to himself while picking cotton in the fields. His song “Ring of Fire” was refused by his family to be in a hemorrhoid-relief commercial. “The song is about the trans formative power of love, “said Cash’s daughter, Rosanne. “Love is a burning thing and it makes a fiery ring bound by wild desire,” the song goes.
