Honor the Man in Black – 2/26/10


Take that Kenny Chesney!

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black
Why you never see bright colors on my back
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone
Well, there’s a reason for the things that I have on.

Tomorrow would have been Johnny Cash’s 78th birthday.

Earlier today it was announced that iTunes had its 10 billionth (10,000,000,000) download and it was Cash’s version of “Guess Things Happen That Way.”

Cash’s final recording, American VI – Ain’t No Grave, was released earlier this month.

In celebration of these milestones and all things Cash, tomorrow has been designated Wear Black for Johnny Cash Day.  So, when you get up tomorrow, instead of that pink button down, grab something black, put it on and carry away a  little darkness on your back.

It’s what Johnny would do.
