Johnny Cash was a larger than life entertainer.

John “Johnny” R. Cash was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author. He is one of the all-time, best-selling musical artists. Over the course of his career, he sold more than 90 million records worldwide. Johnny Cash is primarily remembered as a country music icon but his song genres embraced rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel. This genre crossover proved to be very appealing to fans. It is actually responsible for Cash winning the rare honor of multiple inductions in the Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.

Johnny Cash traditionally began his concerts by simply introducing himself by saying, "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash,” which was followed by his signature song, "Folsom Prison Blues.”
