Johnny Cash was born on February 26, 1932 and died on September 12, 2003.

Cash was known for his deep, instantly recognizable voice and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black". In addition, he initiated almost all of his concerts with the simple "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash", a few concerts he began with the words "Hello, I'm not Johnny Cash."

He made his first single, "Hey Porter", for Sun Records in 1955. The same place that Elvis recorded his in 1953.

"Million Dollar Quartet" is the name given to recordings made on Tuesday December 4, 1956 in the Sun Record Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The recordings were of an impromptu jam session among Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash. It was arguably the first supergroup.
