Johnny Cash Stamp Unveiling

Join us Wednesday, June 5 for the unveiling of the U.S. Postal Service's Johnny Cash stamp on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the Ryman. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Starting at 10:30 a.m., a special ceremony will recognize the Man in Black's contributions to music and pop culture, followed by a series of appearances from a few of Johnny Cash's closest friends and family including John Carter Cash, Carlene Carter, the Oak Ridge Boys, Randy Travis and Marty Stuart.

 

Johnny Cash is memorialized in a limited-edition Forever stamp, issued by the U.S. Postal Service on June 5, 2013.  For the stamp art, art director and stamp designer Greg Breeding chose a photograph of Johnny Cash taken during the photo session for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash (1963). The photo was taken by Frank Bez for Columbia Records (now part of Sony Music Entertainment). Breeding designed the square stamp and pane to resemble the appearance of a 45 rpm record sleeve.  The stamp is part of U.S. Postal Service's Music Icon Series, which also includes stamps honoring Lydia Mendoza (available now) and Ray Charles (to be released in September). The stamps are available for purchase at Ryman Auditorium on June 5 from 9 a.m. until noon, at the CMA Festival Fan Fair X at LP Field June 6-9, local post offices and online.
