Johnny Cash (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was a celebrated country superstar with a signature earthy bass-baritone, a sardonic yet humble demeanor, and a great deal of crossover appeal who became famous beginning in the mid 1950s. A prolific songwriter, his long string of mostly self-penned hits on both the Pop/Rock and Country charts includes such classics as "I Walk The Line" (1956), "Ring Of Fire" (1963), "Folsom Prison Blues" (1968), "A Boy Named Sue" (1969), and "Man In Black" (1971).
Over his long career, Johnny Cash's influence extended well beyond country music to such varied genres as rockabilly, folk, blues, and gospel, and he is widely regarded a pioneering figure in rock & roll. His numerous honors and accolades included multiple Grammys and CMT awards and the Kennedy Center Honors (1996), and he was one of very few performing artists to be inducted into both the Country Music Hall of Fame (1980) and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (1992). Johnny Cash is one of the top-selling artists of all time with over 90 million records sold to date.
