    Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.

    Often known as the "Man in Black", Johnny Cash was a music legend. He recorded music from the mid-1950's until his death in 2003. His music was hard to define. Was it rock, country, or gospel? Was he a musician, a rebel, a TV icon, or a christian? Throughout his life, Cash was all of these things and more. Johnny Cash lived a life of contradictions but one thing is for sure, Cash wrote music for the common man, the poor man, the prisoner, and those people who couldn't speak out for themselves.  During his lifetime, he was inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Country Music Hall of Fame. Since his death in 2003, Cash's music has lived on through posthumous albums. The last of these recordings is Ain't No Grave, was released in early 2010.
