The stepdaughter of legend JOHNNY

CASH, and daughter of country singer JUNE CARTER

CASH has been found dead.

Rosey Nix Adams was found

yesterday (October 26). Her body lay alongside Jimmy Campbell, a Nashville fiddle player, in a parked

bus in circumstances the Montgomery Country Sheriff’s department believe to be “suspicious”, according to the BBC.

The news will come as a shock to the

Cash family, who have lost both Johnny and

June in the past five months.

The pair are believed

to have died from carbon monoxide poisoning, though drug-related items were

found at the scene.

Kirt Webster, spokesperson for

the family, issued the following statement: “The Cash and

Carter families are shocked and deeply saddened by the

untimely death of Rosey Carter Adams. The family has

suffered greatly this year by the successive passing of

Rosey’s mother, June Carter Cash, and her

stepfather, Johnny Cash.”

Johnny died

on September 12 this year following diabetes complications, aged

71.

As previously reported on NME.COM, a

Johnny Cash box set will be released at the end of next

month, and features 64 previously unreleased tracks. A tribute

gig also takes place next month, on November 10, and features tributes from

Bono, Bob Dylan

and Bruce

Springsteen
