--Johnny Cash (1932-2003) American singer and songwriter
Johnny's 79th birthday would have been today -- I didn't really come to appreciate the Man in Black until after his death, but since then I've been steadily working my way through his lifetime of work. Here's a song that was written as a gift to him in 1974 from his stepdaughter, Carlene Carter. After his death, this recording of the song "It Takes One To Know Me" was found in the vault of his studio. Check out Johnny Cash Radio.

Anyone hear of any updates re: the road and trail construction at the top of Roan? The original date I heard for completion of the project was June 2011. Anyone know if they are ahead of schedule?
