In the summer of 2003, Charlotte photographer Daniel Coston photographed two Johnny Cash shows in Virginia. They turned out to be the country music icon's final public appearances before his death in September 2003.

Now, four of Coston's photographs are featured in "House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, Johnny Cash" (Inside Editions; $39.95), by Cash's son, John Carter Cash. Among the four is the one at right, a photo of father and son.
"John Carter has said that he is very thankful that I was there, and got the photos that I did. Which honestly means the world to me," Coston told me in an email. "I shot those shows not caring what the outcome would be, but because I wanted to document what felt like an amazing series of events in the lives of the Cash and Carter families. As well as my own, as it turned out."
