Washington: A "forever" stamp honoring country music legend Johnny Cash will go on sale from Wednesday, coinciding with the end of a yearlong celebration of the Man in Black`s life and career.

A free public concert in Nashville by family and friends of the singer also will honour his six-decade career, Fox News reported.

The 46-cent stamp will feature a 1963 image of Cash shot by Frank Bez during the photo session for the album `Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.`

Cash`s son, John Carter Cash, said the stamp is unusual, and therefore appropriate for his father`s legacy.
