Johnny Cash would have turned 88 on February 26, 2020, but the world lost the music legend in 2003 due to complications from diabetes. Despite his absence, the Man in Black's iconic music, his pop culture legacy, and his profound impact on musicians can still be felt more than a decade and a half later.

During his 60+ years as one of the world's most beloved and prolific performers, Cash released an astounding 96 albums consisting of more than 1,500 songs. It's an achievement matched be very few of his fellow musicians, and one that's still admired today.
