Johnny Cash will be immortalized in the city of Folsom, California, where he performed his controversial, yet iconic, concert at the famed prison almost 50 years ago.

The 40-foot-tall memorial, appropriately called “Man in Black” and created by famous artist Gary Tillery, features a design which will have the allusion of Cash being surrounded by a ring of fire at sunset.

The statue is one of several stops on the Johnny Cash Trail and is expected to be constructed by 2018.
