Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with Columbia records and embarked on one of the most remarkable musical careers of the twentieth century. Transforming into The Man In Black, Johnny spent more than thirty years reinventing and contradicting himself--breaking all of the rules of traditional country music only to emerge as the ultimate mythic hero and archetype of the genre.

No other artist has touched the world of music quite like Johnny Cash. He is the only person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame AND The Songwriter's Hall Of Fame. His very name is synonymous with the fight for the rights of the poor and downtrodden and the image of "The Man In Black" is as deeply American as the stars and stripes themselves. Johnny Cash is America.

This biography was provided by the artist or their representative.

Many of the people who today have some form of progressive cognitive disorder were growing up in the 1930's and 40's. The recordings that molded their musical tastes were most likely released in those decades and the decades of the 50's and 60's. It is that music that will provoke the strongest positive reminiscences. The most influential singers and musicians of that era are included in the American Legends CD collection. Each track has been digitally remastered for clean, clear sound, and each contains a short biography of the artist. The biography can be a great jumping-off point for a conversation about the artist, about music in general or about the time period; a time period that is undoubtedly very important to the person in your care. The American Legends CDs offer an affordable way to build a library of reminiscence music.
