Cash Family Rejects Ad for Hemorrhoid Relief

The family of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash will not allow the song “Ring of Fire” to advertise a hemorrhoid-relief product, Rosanne Cash tells Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean. The song’s co-writer Merle Kilgore had previously told the newspaper he thought the song would be a suitable match for the product, but Rosanne said, “We would never allow the song to be demeaned like that.” June Carter Cash co-wrote the song with Kilgore, and it became one of Cash’s most famous hits.
