Three years after his death, Johnny Cash topped the Billboard album charts this week -- scoring his first number one album in 37 years. "American V: A Hundred Highways" sold 88,000 copies its first week in stores, also knocking the Dixie Chicks from the top of the Country charts after a seven-week reign. Cash's last chart-topping disc was 1969's "Johnny Cash at San Quentin."
