Befitting a love story like June and Johnny, Cash died from complications related to diabetes, only four months after his wife passed away (via Biography). His last public performance was in July of that year when Cash said — and you may want to grab a hankie at this point — “The spirit of June Carter overshadows me tonight with the love she had for me and the love I have for her.”
Where else would a husband that devoted want to be buried than in a plot right next to his beloved bride? As it turns out, Johnny Cash is buried is right next to June at a cemetery near their home in Hendersonville, Tennessee (via Time). Where the musicians are laid to rest is marked by a simple tombstone, suitable for two songwriters known for documenting the struggles of the common person in their music.
What’s written on the tombstone is nothing more than June and Johnny’s first and last names as well as “I Walk the Line” and “Wildflower,” one of June’s most well-known songs. All this proves that — and just like the song “I Walk the Line” goes — Johnny Cash finds it very, very easy to be true, even in the afterlife.
