About Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash was born to Ray and Carrie Rivers Cash on February 26, 1932. He grew up in Arkansas, where he developed his love for music by listening to gospel music and radio. His mother taught him how to play guitar, and he started to write songs at the mere age of 12. His voice eventually developed the deep baritone that he is well-known for, and eventually (after serving in the military), moved to Memphis, TN. From there, he auditioned for Sam Phillips and recorded his first songs in 1955. With the release of 'Folsom Prison Blues', he got his first No. 1 Hit with 'I Walk the Line'. After such booming success, he went on to release an amazing amount of hits and created a country music legacy.
