    Johnny Cash Suit Designed by Great Western Tailoring. Johnny Cash was one of the most powerful forces in the shaping of American popular music. Scoring more than 100 Top 40 country hits, plus a dozen pop hits, "The Man in Black" authored more than 400 songs that painted images which became a narrative for the American dream. Cash got his start at Sun Records, and, like his labelmates Elvis Presley, Charlie Rich, and Jerry Lee Lewis, he made the record label money with such hits as "I Walk The Line," "There You Go," and "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen." He signed with Columbia Records in 1958, and spent nearly 30 years there, scoring with such hits as "Ring Of Fire," "Understand Your Man," "Man In Black," and "A Boy Named Sue." Winner of six Grammy Awards and numerous other Entertainer of the Year Awards, Cash became an inspiration to a new generation of rockers in the '70s. He hosted his own television show, and when he was elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980, Cash was the youngest living musician ever enshrined. When Cash was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, he became the first artist ever enshrined in both halls. Johnny Cash died on September 12, 2003, and will always be considered a legendary icon of American music. This three-piece pinstriped outfit includes a coat, vest and pants designed for Johnny Cash by Great Western Tailoring of Chicago. Johnny Cash's name is sewn into the coat pocket and pants. This outfit shows age wear and the pants show a few stains that would not be evident for display purposes.
