Johnny Cash is set to grace a tribute stamp in the United States.

The late country singer is to be honoured with a commemorative stamp produced by the United States Postal Service, writes Beyond The Perf.

The Cash tribute stamp will be produced as part of the Music Icons series and will feature a photograph taken by Frank Bez during the sessions for 1963's "Ring Of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash".

Writes Beyond The Perf: "The Johnny Cash stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate."

A new museum dedicated to the life of Johnny Cash is set to open in Nashville.

The museum will be operated by Bill Miller, a collector of Johnny Cash memorabilia, and will contain items donated by Cash's family as well as items from - and the original sign of - The House of Cash, the Johnny Cash museum in Hendersonville, Tennessee which closed in 1999 and features in the iconic video for Cash's single "Hurt".

The museum will be situated on Nashville's main strip, Lower Broadway.

A project to preserve Cash's childhood home in Dyess, Arkansas is also currently underway. The house will be restored to what it looked like when Cash was a child in the 1930s and 1940s.

Johnny Cash died in 2003 at the age of 71.

    I don't get why the video of Hurt is posted here, unless it's to show the old museum in Hendersonville. I know that it seems to be what people remember the most (it was the most recent thing he did that was really popular), but it's not really representative of his career.
