According to reports, Johnny Cash made his first appearance in public since the death of his beloved wife June in May.

Cash was at The Carter Fold in Hiltons, VA, which is near June's birthplace of Maces Springs. "[June] loved this valley and all these people and all you people," said an emotional Cash at the event. "I don't know hardly what to say tonight about being up here without her. I wish I could share it more, how we felt about each other."

Johnny performed some of his classics, including "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire" and "I Walk the Line," and each song he performed generated a standing ovation from the delighted crowd.

Toward the end of the concert, Cash thanked the audience. "It's been a pleasure," he said, adding that being at a place that June loved so much was "healing" for him.
