Johnny Cash Albums

  • Johnny Cash was known for:
    • His deep, calm bass-baritone voice
    • the distinctive train-like chugging guitar rhythms
    • A rebelliousness coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor
    • Free prison concerts
    • A trademark all-black stage wardrobe which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black"
  • Much of Cash's music contained themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career
  • He traditionally began his concerts by simply introducing himself, "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash", followed by "Folsom Prison Blues"

His other signature songs include:
  • I Walk the Line
  • Ring of Fire
  • Get Rhythm
  • Man in Black
  • One Piece at a Time
  • A Boy Named Sue
  • Jackson
  • Hey, Porter
  • Orange Blossom Special
  • Rock Island Line
  • Cash is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide.
  • His genre-spanning music embraced country, rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel sounds. This crossover appeal earned him the rare honor of being inducted into the Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.
  • His music career was dramatized in the 2005 biopic Walk the Line.
