From June Carter Cash's New York Times Obituary
"In the mid-50's she was managed by Colonel Tom Parker and toured with Elvis Presley. It was Presley who first told her about Johnny Cash, intriguing her with his description of how he managed to command an audience onstage while staying perfectly still. She and Mr. Cash finally met in 1956 backstage at the Grand Ole Opry, and she has written of an instant mutual fascination."

This news was posted in the off-topic area, but I feel that her death deserves to be included in this section of the board as well.

Very sad news.
