'Johnny Loves Vivian' Bench in San Antonio, Texas

In 1951, before he was a country music superstar, Johnny Cash was a young man in San Antonio about to ship out from basic training. When away from the base, Cash enjoyed strolling along the River Walk, holding hands with and courting his love, Vivian Liberto.

One sunny afternoon, Cash pulled a pocket knife from his pocket and inscribed “Johnny Loves Vivian” into a large cedar bench located along the river. Though worn and barely visible, that simple love note can still be seen today.
