Born in Kingsland, Arkansas in 1932, John R. “Johnny” Cash was an American singer songwriter, guitarist, actor and author who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. Although primarily remembered as a country music legend, his genre-spanning songs and sound embraced rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk and gospel. No other artist has touched the world of music quite like Johnny Cash. He is the only person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and The Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame. Cash was known for his deep, calm bass-baritone voice, the distinctive sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, a rebelliousness coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor, free prison concerts and a trademark look, which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”. He traditionally began his concerts with the simple “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash”, followed by his signature “Folsom Prison Blues”. His best known songs included “I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm” and “Man in Black”. During the last stage of his career, Cash covered songs by several late 20th century rock artists, most notably “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails.
