    Johnny Cash Early Sun Records Photo Signed by Cash, Luther Perkins, Marshall Grant, Marty Robbins, and Lee Emerson (Circa 1956). An 8" x 10" B&W glossy head shot of a very young Johnny Cash, "Exclusive SUN Recording Artist." It is signed on the verso in ballpoint ink by the above-named stars. Perkins and Grant were Cash's sidemen in the Tennessee Three. Lee Emerson was a noted songwriter and Marty Robbins personal manager; in 1956 they recorded a single together, "I'll Know You're Gone." Sadly, Emerson lost his life when Barry Sadler (of "Green Beret" fame) shot and killed him in 1978, the result of a dispute over a woman. Photo shows light wear with a small tear at top margin, but is in overall Very Good condition. COA From Heritage Auctions.
