Johnny Cash (1932 – 2003) is best remembered internationally as a country music artist, but we feel his influence everywhere — from rock and folk to blues and gospel. In his unmistakable bass-baritone voice, Cash sang of love, loss, hardship, and faith, telling the story of the nation one person at a time. As part of the new Music Icons series, this stamp honors the visionary known simply to many as "the Man in Black."
