Johnny Cash fans around the world are being asked to come together to celebrate the The Man In Black’s birthday today, February 26, by joining in the global initiative to Light Up A Star For Johnny Cash’s Birthday. By visiting Johnny Cash Online fans can preview the title track from the upcoming unreleased Johnny Cash album Out Among the Stars and send Cash a birthday wish via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #JohnnyCash.
This global event began at midnight in New Zealand and will roll around the world before ending at midnight in the last time zone in Hawaii. Throughout the day, birthday messages will be displayed on the landing page at Johnny Cash's website, and fans will be able to see their personal star in the sky attached to their birthday wish. Fans can also roll over stars in the sky to read other birthday wishes for The Man In Black.
The campaign will bring attention to Out Among the Stars, a remarkable new album comprised of 13 recently discovered Johnny Cash studio tracks that will be available on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. Fans can visit iTunes, Amazon and the Johnny Cash online store to preorder.
