Facing an uncertain future and lacking a #1 single for over four years, Johnny Cash revitalized his career by releasing 'Ring of Fire' in 1963. Written by June Carter along with songwriter Merle Kilgore, the song was inspired by the intrigue that shortly thereafter ignited into the now legendary love story of Johnny and June. NO RESERVE.
