J. R. Cash was born in Kingsland, Arkansas on February 26, 1932. He was the son of Ray and Carie Cash. He was one of seven children. By the age of three the family moved to Dyess, Arkansas, where J. R. was raised. The Cash family was completely of Scottish heritage. Something J. R. wouldn’t learn until decades later when he looked it up.

When J. R. turned five, he had to start work in the cottonfields. It was here that Cash first was introduced to music, as the family used to sing while they were picking. When the work was done, J. R. sat down in front of the radio and listened to country and gospel. Gospel songs and hymns were popular music to both listen to and sing. Carie Cash sang from the “Heavenly Highway Hymns”; a book wich J. R. almost memorized. So it was through the HHH, the work in the fields and the radio that J. R. got the inspiration. He started playing the guitar at a very young age, and already by the age of twelve he had written his own song. When he started high school, he also performed at the local radiostation KLCN. 

On an older age Cash recorded “Hey Porter” and “Cry, Cry, Cry” in 1955. When he signed the contract with Sun in ’55 he would take “Johnny” as a stage name.

On an older age Cash recorded “Hey Porter” and “Cry, Cry, Cry” in 1955. When he signed the contract with Sun in ’55 he would take “Johnny” as a stage name.

 

The first single “Hey Porter” made reasonable success at the hit parade, and “Cry, Cry, Cry” made US Country Chart in 1955 at #14. After the first success Cash started with a hit production like few. In 1956 he released the singles wich he really experienced success with. Like cars on an assembly line, “Folsom Prison Blues”, ”So Doggone Lonesome”, “I Walk The Line”, ”Get Rhytm”, “There You Go” and “Train of Love”, rolled out of the Sun Recording studio. 

 

“Folsom Prison Blues” and “So Doggone Lonesome” made #4 on the US Country charts. And Johnny Cash made his first #1 position with the “I Walk the Line”, “Get Rhytm” single. “I Walk the Line” also made it to the US Singles list as #17. Cash released 10 more songs divided on five singles on Sun Records before he moved on to a bigger label. And Sun Records continued to release singles of him well into the ‘60s.
