Johnny Cash Honored on New Postage Stamp

By:

The United States Postal Service recently made a big announcement (no, we’re not talking about the fact that they’re cutting Saturday service). The USPS will soon honor Country music legend Johnny Cash with a new postage stamp.

The “Man in Black” is one of three recording artists who will be featured in a new series of stamps.

“We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut,” USPS representative Mark Saunders told Today.com. “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.”

The other two artists in the series will be revealed at a later date.

Fans can expect the Johnny Cash Forever stamp to be released later this year.
