Johnny Cash was born on Feb. 26, 1932. After starting out as a young songwriter in his parents' kitchen, Cash moved out and eventually became one of the biggest names in country music. The city he would later adopt, Nashville, will soon be the home of a comprehensive new museum dedicated to Cash.

Nashville is also the home to a pair of young Canadian songwriters — Lennon (age 13) and Maisy (age nine) Stella. Otherwise known as the Stella Sisters, the pair, who grew up with their country-singing parents in Oshawa, Ont., have gone from YouTube sensations to starring on ABC's hit show Nashville.

To help CBC Music celebrate the Man in Black's legacy, we asked the Stella Sisters to perform a cover of Cash's signature songs within the hallowed halls of Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.

What a pair of cuties -- great harmonies and they work very well together. Very natural look and feel to them. Let this be a lesson to parents everywhere: yank that electronic device out of your kid's hand right now and give them a musical instrument instead, and you just might end up with great kids like these. Good job, Stella Sisters: you made my day on so many levels!

If that little one (Maisy) isn't the cutest thing, I don't know what is!  Great performance!

These girls are sweet and very talented. The fresh sound needs nothing else. Keeping it simple will continue to let beauty of the voices ring through .

I saw them perform this song on Nashville, which is a great show. I'm not a big country music fan and didn't think I would like the show, but I do. A lot! Talented girls. Maisy rocked that uke.
