* ConceptAlbum: Johnny released several concept albums for Columbia including Bitter Tears (songs about Native Americans), Ride This Train (songs about trains and railroads), a few cowboy song albums, a few patriotic song albums, Blood, Sweat and Tears (songs about the working man), The Holy Land (a travelogue of a visit he made to Israel) and The Rambler (two men driving cross country in search of a lost love). Beyond simply collecting themed songs, a number of Cash's concept albums include monologues and, in the case of The Rambler, scripted audio drama scenes, to link the songs.

'''J. R.[[note]]Many sources erroneously attribute the middle name "Robert", however officially the "R" did not stand for any name. Cash's official birth name was in fact J.R., but he was made to adopt John in 1950 when he joined the Air Force.[[/note]] "Johnny" Cash''' (February 26, 1932 -- September 12, 2003), easily one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, was a country artist, singer-songwriter, and rock musician. Known for his deep baritone and distinctive wardrobe, he was nicknamed the Man in Black, and started almost all his concerts by saying "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash". He's also well-known for his relationship with fellow musician June Carter, whom he eventually married. His life was eventually adapted into the biopic ''Film/WalkTheLine'' starring Creator/JoaquinPhoenix and Creator/ReeseWitherspoon.

* FlippingTheBird: A picture of Cash doing this was taken at the 1968 San Quentin concert.

The finger now has its own [[https://www.facebook.com/JCsmiddlefinger Facebook page]]. Cash later explained in liner notes for a reissue of ''A San Quentin'' that it was directed at a British TV crew that was filming the concert and got in his way.
