Most likely, like you, I am a big fan of Johnny Cash. His music is the kind that is timeless, and transcends generations.

And as Saving Country Music points out:

It says a lot about the state of music today that the two biggest names in music in the last couple of months have been Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash. Cash, who passed away in 2003, recently crowned the country music charts once again at #1 with his posthumous, lost album release Out Among The Stars, and came in at #3 in all of music.

Check out this Barney Hoskyns, Johnny Cash interview from 1996 -- just recently found and animated by Blank on Blank at PBS.
