Pay with Cash- Johnny Cash Mastercard

A perfect fit: a signature debit card for people that like to pay with cash, but want to enjoy the convenience of plastic. Johnny Cash symbolizes the hard knocks of life in his lyrics & his life. Virtually everyone qualifies for this card, since there is no credit check. You need a bank account to sign up for the card online, because you load the card with your own cash since it's a prepaid debit card, but it's accepted everywhere Visa & Mastercard are taken. give you the details. I'd have to think it would be a must for die hard fans as it guarantees buzz at the cash register with other fans.
I've always been intrigued with the mystique that Johnny created throughout his career. He was patently known as the man in black. His legendary shows in Folsom Prison (1968) and in San Quentin (1969) cemented him as the man of hard knocks. His rugged face that made me think he'd just got out of a bar fight added to his tough guy persona.

I doubt most people know if he ever served time in prison. He didn't. However, he did end up in jail 7 times for misdemeanors. It was more like a hotel stay since each incident only lasted one night.

Johnny made Rolling Stone's "Greatest Artist of All Time" list in 2004, Johnny ranked #31. After 50 million sold albums & an almost 50 year music career, most of his hits are familiar to every American: "Walk the Line, A Boy Named Sue, Ring of Fire," and if you didn't hear his remake of the Nine Inch Nails Song, "Hurt," I've included it below. The song sounds like it was made for him.
