Johnny Cash

24 x 24 "

American. (1932-2003)

With a blend of Blues, Country, and Rock & Roll, the music of Johnny Cash struck a common chord in the hearts of millions. His iconic moniker "The Man in Black" signified his innate desire to blaze his own path through life. In 1980, he became the youngest inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, Cash struggled with a lifelong drug and alcohol addiction. He found salvation through June Carter, whom he sang with and proposed to onstage. Yet, through all his ups and downs, his voice, presence, and rebel attitude remain a staple of the American cultural landscape.
