So here we take a look at Johnny Cash in the 1970s. The man was born in 1932 and made 96 albums and over 150 singles, making him a true king of country music. His music crossed across the country charts to the main pop charts across the world.
In 1969 Johnny had his own TV show that ran through to 1971 making him a well known face across America. This was around the time that Johnny did his prison concerts too. This built further on his huge single success in the U.S.
