The U.S. Postal Service announced this week that Arkansas native Johnny Cash will be honored with a U.S. postage stamp, one of the USPS's "Music Icons" series. Cash, a who was born in Kingsland and raised in Dyess in northeast Arkansas, died in 2003. The release date for the Cash stamp hasn't been announced.

The Cash stamp will be based on a photograph which was taken for the cover of the 1963 album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. The USPS Music Icons series has previously honored luminaries such as Miles Davis, Edith Piaf, and Tejano music star Lydia Mendoza.

Almost makes us want to, you know, write a letter and mail it.
