Johnny Cash (1932-2003) was one of the most celebrated and honored country singers of all time. His signature song was "I Walk the Line." His other hits included "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire," and "A Boy Named Sue." He was a member of the country supergroup The Highwaymen in the late 1980s, with Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Cash was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.

In 1980, Cash guest starred in The Muppet Show episode 521.

Sesame Street

Cash was also spoofed on Sesame Street in the early 90s with a Muppet singer named Ronnie Trash, who sang a Cash-inspired tune about the environment.

Kevin Clash said that for his later appearance, the entire cast and crew wore black in tribute to the singer's famous choice in wardrobe.[1]
