The Last Great American

26 Feb

John R. “Johnny” Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Many remember him as a country music icon. The truth is his songs and sound spanned many genres including rockabilly , rock and rollbluesfolk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Happy Birthday Johnny Cash!
