More About Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash started his career with a one of a kind mix of blues, hillbilly, and gospel music— later coined as “rockabilly”— leading him to Sun Records where he recorded “I Walk The Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues”. After transforming into The Man in Black, Cash began breaking musical barriers and creating an all country sound with his signature low baritone voice. Cash achieved undeniable success in the country music industry, becoming the youngest inductee to join the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980, and also joining The rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. With 6 recorded albums, Cash’s most popular songs include hits such as “Ring of Fire”, “Hurt”, “Jackson”, and “God’s Gonna Cut You Down”.
