Happy Birthday Johnny Cash

February 26 is Johnny Cash's birthday. Live your life accordingly.

There is a wealth of Johnny Cash material available on youtube. This song is from a concert he did in the Manhattan Center in NYC in 1994. Kicked to the curb long before by a country music establishment that didn't understand him, Cash was "rediscoved" (ha) by a new, young urban audience.

"[This song] was written by Nick Lowe and Carleen Carter...they got me pegged too" he said, before starting "The Beast in Me".

Why didn't anyone tell me about this?
