Johnny Cash is not a Country Music legend.  He is an American legend.

Name a Hall of Fame that has anything to do with music and there's a pretty good chance that The Man In Black is in it.  Rock and Roll?  Yes.  Songwriters?  Of Course.  Country Music? Duh.

In this great video clip from 1985, Johnny and wife June stop by and visit with a legend in her own right, the late great Joan Rivers.  Notice the book that Johnny has just written and published!
