The Fabulous Johnny Cash is the third studio album by American country singer, Johnny Cash. It was released on November 3, 1958 by Columbia Records, not long after Cash's departure from Sun Records, and was re-issued in 2002 by Sony Music's Legacy imprint. The re-issue contains six bonus tracks and unedited versions of the songs. Legacy Records reissued the album in 180 gram vinyl for Record Store Day in November 23, 2012.[4]

The album features five tracks written by Cash and backing vocal performances by The Jordanaires (who at this time were also regulars on Elvis Presley's recording sessions for RCA Records). Overall, even though the album is only 29 minutes in length, it is considered one of Cash's most cohesive pieces. This is largely because his sessions with Columbia were completed over a two-month period. That is greatly reduced when compared to the year by year sessions by Sun Records.[5] The Fabulous Johnny Cash was a successful debut on Columbia for Cash as it sold over half a million copies during its initial release.[6] The album was recorded simultaneously with Hymns by Johnny Cash, released in 1959.
