Back before some of us were even old enough to attempt to “Walk the Line,” Johnny Cash was lighting up the stage on late night talk shows. In this video, on an episode of The Joan Rivers Show in 1985, Cash performed his smash hit “Ring of Fire” and his wife June joined him on stage for an interview with the outspoken host.
During his interview Johnny discussed his new book “The Man in White” and his home life. Johnny held his own with Rivers until June joined the interview and offered an engagement story that could only be told by June Carter Cash herself.
According to June, while she was performing as one of Johnny’s backup singers, in the middle of a song, Johnny stopped and popped the question. June’s response?
“I said, ‘Shut up and sing!'”
Classic Johnny and June.
