RIP, June Carter Cash

June Carter Cash, a Fixture in Country Music, Dies at 73

June Carter Cash, a singer, songwriter and actress and the wife and collaborator of Johnny Cash, died yesterday in Nashville. She was 73.

She had been critically ill since having surgery at Baptist Hospital on May 7 to replace a heart valve.

If you had told me that one of the Cash's died, I would never have guessed it to be June. I have been fortunate to have seen her in concert (in conjunction with Johnny) three times. She was always a highlight of the show -- spry, witty, and fun. She's always been a great source of support for Johnny. I'm sure he'll be taking it hard, along with the rest of the family.

June will be missed.
