(Memphis) The “Man in Black” is getting a new honor. The U-S Postal Service is putting

Johnny Cash on a stamp for its new music icons series.

A spokesman says Cash was a natural fit, since his music crossed Country, Rock and Roll, as well as R and B.

The Cash Forever stamp will be square and resemble a 45-record sleeve.

It’s based off a photo taken of Cash in 1963 as he recorded “Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.”

The stamp will be released later this year.
