The Man in Black is about to get his personal day in Arkansas.
The Arkansas Home on Tuesday gave remaining approval to a invoice that might make Feb. 26 ‘Johnny Cash Day’, voting 92-0 to ship the measure to Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who will signal it, in keeping with his workplace. The state Senate authorised the invoice earlier this month.
The day will not be a authorized vacation however as an alternative might be a memorial day marked by an annual proclamation from the governor.
It’s the state’s newest effort to honor Money, who was born in Kingsland, a tiny city about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Little Rock. The Legislature in 2019 voted to interchange its two statues on the U.S. Capitol with ones of the nation music legend and of civil rights chief Daisy Bates. A fundraising effort is underway for each statues.
