NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Martin Guitar unveiled its brand new Johnny Cash guitar.

Johnny's son and stepdaughter both performed some of their dad's songs with the new guitar.

Carlene Carter said it's every kid's dream to own a Martin guitar.

Johnny Cash actually wanted a black Martin guitar back when he was performing. Martin told him they didn't make any black ones at the time; so he told them to just rub some shoe polish on one.
