Happy Birthday, Johnny Cash!

Born on February 26th, 1932 in Kingsland, Arkansas, Johnny Cash became one of the greatest songwriters and acts in music of all time. Defining what sultry looked like and redefining what kind of a person could croon, he was a driving force behind the wheels of his guitar.

He and his Tennessee Three powered through music with rhythms like that of a freight train and a rebelliousness that followed Mr. Cash even off stage. Having lived a long life his career resembles that within his repertoire, having sold over 90 million records worldwide, a service in the military, activism throughout the years, and of course his ups-and-downs. Johnny Cash passed away at the age of 71 whose love for music was so strong that his latest recordings were made nearly weeks before his passing. Happy Birthday to a true american legend.
