Bright & Early: Happy Birthday, Johnny Cash Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Today would have been Johnny Cash’s 78th birthday and it’s Friday (and it’s also Michael Bolton’s birthday.) So wear some black, dust off your old Cash records, drink some Beer Named Sue (later in the day, of course), and show some respect to the Man In Black who did so much to put our city on the map. Coincidentally, iTunes celebrated their 10-billionth download this week, and it was a copy of Cash’s “Guess Things Happen That Way” bought by a 71-year old man in Woodstock, Georgia.

    My first comment…and all for the chance at winning!

  • Bright & Early: Pick Me! Edition

  • nashvillest is the best blog ever 🙂

  • I would comment that they writers at Nashvillest are among the best and brightest minds this city has to offer. I will further state that I hope my daughter grows up to be just like them. I get very frustrated when people speak of Ghandi, MLK, or Mother Theresa as if they are somehow ‘better’ than the Nashvillest crew, which is just erroneous.

    Thanks Nashvillest for making my day a little bit brighter.

    • We should totally pick you. It’s tempting, oh so tempting…

  • Noah


  • I hadn’t heard about the book. I may have to pick one up if I don’t win.

  • This is Nashville
    Our blogs are Nashviller than other zip code based blogs far and wide
    But only one captures our complexities just in the right light
    Titans, musicial musings, our failings, coffee, social change and drama
    Served to you on a binary platter of style
    This is Nashvilliest
