2013 46¢ Johnny Cash

Music Icons Series

 

Raised in rural Arkansas during the Great Depression, Johnny Cash (1932-2003) knew hardship all too well. It became his musical inspiration for “The Man in Black,” one of many compositions that made Johnny an internationally renowned entertainer.

 

Tragedy rocked Cash’s childhood when his older brother died, but soon the young singer-songwriter found solace in music, especially gospel. In the 1950s, Cash took the country by storm with such hits as “I Walk the Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” His crossover hit “Ring of Fire” topped the pop music charts in 1963. Though he is considered a country music legend, Cash’s style touched rock and roll, blues, folk, and gospel.

 

Cash reached a younger generation in the 1990s with his own versions of modern hits, earning five Grammys for a lifetime total of 17. He was honored by the Kennedy Center and is one of few artists to be named to the Country, Rock and Roll, Gospel, and Songwriters Halls of Fame. In fact, he considered his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame to be one of his greatest achievements.  Johnny Cash wore black to honor the downtrodden while raising his unmistakable voice in songs of sorrow, hardship, and redemption.

 

Designed by Greg Breeding, the Cash stamp includes a photograph taken for the 1963 album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.  The stamp is mostly dark, paying homage to Cash’s nickname, “The Man in Black.”  The stamp and full pane were designed to resemble a 45rpm record sleeve, with the pane picture part of a record peeking through the top.
