John R. Cash was an American
singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and
author. He is widely considered one of the
most influential popular musicians of the
20th century and is one of the best-selling
music artists of all time, having sold more
than 90 million records worldwide.
Although primarily remembered as a
country music icon, his genre-spanning
songs and sound embraced rock and roll,
rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel.
This crossover appeal won Cash the rare
honor of multiple inductions in the
Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel
Music Halls of Fame.
