Johnny Cash will be featured on a new stamp by the United States Postal Service. The limited edition Johnny Cash Forever stamp will be released on June 5, 2013 at a public event in Nashville. Members of the Cash family will be on hand to commemorate the event.

"It is an amazing blessing that my father Johnny Cash be honored with the issue of this stamp," said John Carter Cash in a statement. "Dad was a hard-working man, a man of dignity. As much as anything else, he was a proud American, always supporting his family, fans and country. I can think of no better way to pay due respect to his legacy than through the release of this stamp."

A number of artists are set to perform for the first-day-of-issuance ceremony including John Carter Cash, Carlene Carter, Larry Gatlin, Jamey Johnson, and others.

The stamps will be available for purchase at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on June 5 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., at the CMA Festival Fan Fair X at LP Field June 6-9, local Post Offices and online at usps.com/stamps.
