Man in Black is an album by country singer Johnny Cash, released on Columbia Records in 1971. Many of the songs on the album contain political references, either broad or specific, while the title song refers both to Cash's tendency to wear black at live shows and to the tumultuous times in which the song was created, implying the Vietnam War. The album's name also eventually became Cash's informal nickname, given to him by the public. Two tracks - "Man in Black" and "Singin' in Vietnam Talkin' Blues" - were released as singles, the former becoming very successful and peaking at No. 3 on the Country charts; the first track features Billy Graham.
