Today would have been Johnny Cash's 78th birthday, and as we noted in a previous post, there's been a push by the Cash family, producer Rick Rubin and Cash's record label to get people to wear black in honor of the singer known as the Man in Black.
Yes, there's a promotional side to it - Cash's last Rubin-produced album was just released - but there's nothing wrong with paying tribute to Johnny Cash. As many of you indicated in your comments, he had quite an impact on American culture.
Some of the messages we received were quite moving, about parents who instilled their love of Cash's music in their children, or people who wrote about what songs such as "Man in Black" or "What Is Truth" meant to them.
So, are you wearing black? Let us know - and feel free to send images or videos to iReport.
