Johnny Cash was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th. century Primarily a country music artist, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll (especially early in his career), as well as blues, folk, and gospel.
Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice, the “chicka-boom” freight train sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”. He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash”.
Much of Cash’s music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption. His signature songs include “I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm” and “Man in Black”. He also recorded humorous songs, such as “One Piece at a Time” and “A Boy Named Sue”, a duet with June Carter called “Jackson”, as well as railroad songs such as “Hey Porter” and “Rock Island Line.” Each print is individually numbered and signed by Peter Deighan, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which is also signed by the artist.
