The United States Postal Service announced that legendary crooner Johnny Cash will grace a special stamp issued this year as part of its new music icons series. The collection will also feature two other musicians in 2013, who have yet to be revealed.

Every year, about 40,000 suggestions for what should grace the stamps are submitted to the Postmaster General's Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee. The committee selects 20 topics to appear on stamps in a given year. This year, the musicians made the cut.

We might have to find more things to mail, because this is the coolest postage stamp since Elvis was issued in 1993.

Rock on, Mr Cash....
