Before he became a country music star, Johnny Cash grew up poor in rural Arkansas during the Great Depression. At the time, losing $75,000 from his bank account was unfathomable. Heck, having $75,000 was just a dream. Cash’s impressive net worth when he died took a hit years earlier when he settled a lawsuit over one of his most notable songs.
