13 Years Ago Today – Johnny Cash Made Last Ever Live Performance (Watch “The Last Folsom Prison Blues” From Last Show)

13 years ago today (7/5/03), Johnny Cash made his last ever live performance when he appeared at the Carter Ranch. Before singing “Ring of Fire”, Cash read a statement about his late wife that he had written shortly before taking the stage: “The spirit of June Carter overshadows me tonight with the love she had for me and the love I have for her. We connect somewhere between here and heaven. She came down for a short visit, I guess, from heaven to visit with me tonight to give me courage and inspiration like she always has.” Cash died on Sept 12th of that year at age 71.
