The United States Postal Service is about to memorialize a country icon with a stamp.  According to Rolling Stone, "The Man in Black" singer, Johnny Cash is about to get his own stamp.

It's part of the "Music Icon" series of stamps that will include at least two more singers that will be revealed later this year.

According to Today.com,the selection process is rather selective:

"We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut. These suggestions are reviewed by the Postmaster General’s Citizens’ Stamp Advisory whose role is to narrow down that 40,000 to roughly 20 and then provide their recommendations to the Postmaster General for final approval." -- USPS representative Mark Saunders

 

I'm glad Johnny made the cut.  He has been a favorite of mine for awhile now and it's good to see the hall of famer back in the news again!
