Johnny Cash would have been 77 years old today. Johnny may not be with us anymore, but he is one of the artists who will truly be immortal. He lives on through the vast catalog of music he made over the course of 50 years, through his television show and specials, and through the influence he’s had, and continues to have, over generations of musicians. Let’s take a minute to pay our respects to one of the true heroes of American music:
