As one of the most popular musicians of all time, Johnny Cash influenced many with his country-rock/gospel sound. Although throughout his early career, "The Man in Black" became addicted to drugs and alcohol, he later cleaned his life up and reaffirmed his Christian faith.

In a 2005 interview with Beliefnet, John Carter Cash, son of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, spoke about the importance of faith in his parents' life:

"My father told me early on about having a life in God. Their faith was the light of their life. They always professed it--their faith and their relationship with Christ. I learned by example, from watching them get through their struggles. They'd always come back to their faith."

In celebration of Johnny Cash's birthday on February 26, here are 11 Johnny Cash quotes on God and faith.
