20 Romantic Collaborations By IRL Couples
“Jackson,” Johnny Cash & June Carter
Billboard called “Jackson” one of the top-five love songs by real-life couples, and the legendary Johnny Cash and June Carter were one of the best real-life couples in music history. Recorded twelve years after their first meeting backstage at the equally historic Grand Ole Opry in 1955, this cover of a Billy Edd Wheeler and Jerry Leiber song won the life-long couple a joint Grammy Award the same year Johnny proposed to June onstage during a Canadian performance. The musicians died within four months of each other in 2003.
