From our friends at Country Music Nation - This coming Sept. 12 will mark the tenth anniversary of Johnny Cash‘s death. And among the tributes and accolades that will undoubtedly mark the occasion comes a new book and CD set honoring the country legend.

Hitting bookstores today, LIFE Unseen: Johnny Cash – An Illustrated Biography is a 192-page collection featuring rare and never-before-seen photos of the Man in Black from the archives of Sony Music Entertainment

The book also includes interviews with Cash and his family, including June Carter Cash, and reminiscences by his daughter Rosanne Cash and son John Carter Cash.

This is so cool - let's face it, even 10 years later, Johnny Cash is still the coolest cat around - check out some of the previously unreleased photos, and let's celebrate the Man in Black!
