John Carter Cash, Grammy award winning producer and only child of Johnny Cash and June Carter, was the latest guest to take part in a very personal and inspiring workshop hosted by singer and songwriter Kasey Lansdale last Saturday afternoon.
His message to those in attendance: “Find out where your joy lies.”
“What I beg of ya’ll is to be open-minded. To find out where that path is.” he said.
He started off the workshop by sharing some of his early struggles in life. “Although I was 30, I was still an apprentice in the family business,” he said. “I was trying to figure out exactly who I was, where I was headed.” He noted that it was hard to find himself when he lived in the shadow of his very successful parents for so long.
His struggle to find himself ended when he landed in the studio with his father for the first time.
“When I began to work in the realm of the recording studio, a light came on. This is what I love. This is where I love to work. This is what I love to do.”
