Johnny Cash

Johnny CashAs is my daily ritual, I was listening to the radio while taking a shower this morning. The news brief opened with word of John Ritters surprising death at 54. Following this piece of information, I heard there was another death to mourn in the celebrity world. Johnny Cash had passed away. Even though I knew he was dying, my heart sank.

The Man in Black really struck a chord with me. He sang for the working man and downtrodden. He sang for the prisoners and the hurt. If you do nothing else today, watch his video for the Nine Inch Nails classic "Hurt". As Trent Reznor said upon first hearing this cover, the song was written for Johnny Cash to sing at this point in his life. Watch it here. Watch it now.
