The Greatest Love Note Ever Was From Johnny Cash

In 1968, many years after they first met backstage at the Grand Ole Opry, legendary singer Johnny Cash proposed to June Carter on stage during a performance in front of an audience of 7,000 in London, Ontario. June urged him to keep singing, but Johnny refused to continue the show until he received an answer.

June said yes and the couple married on March 1, 1968, in Franklin, Kentucky.

Through thick and thin, they were married until June’s death in 2003. Johnny dedicated his final live performance to her, and passed away within four months after her.

The results of a British poll designated a note, written to June by Johnny, as the “Greatest Love Letter of All Time.”

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Happy Birthday Princess,We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

 But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me.You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much. Happy Birthday Princess.

 John

  1. Johnny Cash – Hurt (Official Music Video)

    Trent Reznor wrote the song, Johnny Cash redid it. I believe Johnny was being rejected by Nashville at this time, goodness knows why. Trent Reznor’s version uses a common word for feces that Johnny substituted with the word Dirt. Video of June has been edited into the scenes, very haunting, very well done.

    I can’t watch this without tearing up heavily, his Music was often very evocative for me, and he did Trent Reznor’s song major justice.

    Great Blog Entry.
