Cash, who died in 2003, sold more than 50 million records in his lifetime, and is widely regarded as one of America's most influential country music figures across a range of genres including rock 'n' roll, blues, folk and gospel. His contribution is such that Cash was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Written by Australian producer Jim Mc Pherson, The Man In Black includes twenty-four well known hits such as Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Sunday Mornin' Coming Down, Get Rhythm, A Boy Named Sue, and Hey Porter.
