RING OF FIRE was first released in 1958 on the album The Fabulous Johnny Cash. Ring of Fire was the very first #1 album when Billboard debuted their Country Albunm Chart on January 11, 1964. It was certified Gold on February 11, 1965 by RIAA, earning him his first GOLD LP. It was recorded during the years 1958 to 1963, and the credit for writing it went to Johnny’s friend and manager (also Hank William’s former manager) Merle Kilgore, and Johnny’s love, June Carter.

In her bio, she wrote that she and Johnny laughed about the real meaning of the term “Ring of Fire, ” because it referred to a…. Certain part of the female anatomy. Who knows the real story? She says it’s so. ” He says “It ain’t so. But it’s a damn fine song and a piece of country history to be sure.
