CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- You can now 'walk the line' right to the post office to remember the man in black.

The U.S. Postal Service is honoring legendary singer, Johnny Cash, with a new stamp in its new "music icons" series.

The Johnny Cash "forever" stamp is square, and looks like a sleeve from a 45 record.

The stamp features a photograph taken by Frank Bez during the photo session for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash (1963).  In the photo, Cash stares out at the viewer through a veil of shadow, his brooding expression fitting for an artist known to so many people simply as “the Man in Black.”

This morning on Larrys Look, the son of Johnny and June Carter Cash talked about his dad and the stamp that honors this music legend.

John Carter Cash is a songwriter, producer, singer, and author.  We asked John about his very busy career and how his dad had such a great influence on so many people.
