Born Valerie June Carter on June 23, 1929, in Maces Springs, Virginia, Cash and her sisters performed as the Carter Sisters, with June singing and playing rhythm guitar. She and Johnny Cash had a number of hits, including “It Ain’t Me Babe” and “If I Were a Carpenter.” She married Cash in 1968, and their story made it to the big screen in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line 37 years later.

In the mid-1950s, June studied at The Actor’s Studio in New York City, landing a role in 1958’s Country Music Holiday, as well as guest spots on TV westerns and soap operas. But she returned to music with her mother and sisters in the early 1960s to work with Johnny Cash. June and Johnny had a number of hits, including “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “Jackson” and “If I Were a Carpenter.” She married Cash on March 1, 1968, and their son, John Carter Cash, was born in 1970.

For much of the 1970s and 1980s June’s career to a backseat to Johnny’s. But in 1999, following what many believed to be her retirement, June reemerged with the album Press On, which won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album. Four years later, Wildwood Flower netted her two Grammys. June won the award for Best Traditional Folk Album and the award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for the song “Keep on the Sunny Side.”
