Get the tissues ready, this tribute is sure to bring tears to your eyes! 

In 1996, Johnny Cash received the honor a lifetime, and was chosen for the Kennedy Center Honor, which is an annual award given to legendary artists as a huge thank you for all of their contributions to American culture. In Johnny's case, this award was a thank you for all that he has brought to the country music industry, and all the amazing music he has given us through his career. 

No one really thought that this performance would bring a tear to Johnny's eye, but the moment his daughter walked on stage, he couldn't hold back his tears. After Kris KristoffersonLyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris paid tribute to Johnny with a medley of his hit songs, Rosanne Cash entered the stage and gave a beautiful speech about her father, saying, 

He's lived a hard life, a tough life, and yet he has a sensitivity to beauty and elegance and children, that is beyond compare. The tie that binds all of these things together is Johnny Cash the songwriter, and as a songwriter he is profoundly original. This is the song that defines him more than any other, his signature song, and a song that he sung at every concert for the last forty years. I want to do this for you dad. 

Rosanne then sang a breathtaking rendition of her father's signature song "I Walk The Line", and there was not a dry eye in the house- including Johnny.

The bond between Johnny and his daughter is so strong, that we cannot even begin to explain in words what happened on the stage that day. This father/daughter duo is simply amazing and this moment was so heartwarming!

You have to see it for yourself, so check it out, and prepare to be blown away!  

LYRICS BELOW

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line
