Country Trivia – Johnny Cash and June Carter Meet

 

Question: Where did Johnny Cash and June Carter meet?

Answer: Johnny Cash and June Carter met backstage at the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium in the ’50s. At the time, they were both a part of the Grand Ole Opry cast, but married to other partners.  In the ’60s they began performing as a duo, and by 1968 the couple married.

Although they had both been married before, Johnny and June were together for 35 years. According to About.com, Johnny often gave June credit for helping him quit his drug addiction. In 1997, Johnny was diagnosed with Shy-Drager syndrome. This diagnosis was later determined to actually be a disease associated with diabetes, autonomic neuropathy. In 1998, Johnny’s lungs were damaged by a bout of severe pneumonia.

A few months after June died, Johnny Cash died from complications from diabetes (respiratory failure) on September 12, 2003. He was at Nashville Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.
