Folsom Prison Blues is for kids.

If you haven't seen this all over the place yet, you will. Soon. Your grandma will be forwarding this to you in weeks from now, mark my words. And, if this is the first place you've seen it, well then, congratulations. May you have the same sense of discovery that I did.

See? Johnny Cash music spans the generations! It gives me a good lot of hope for the future, too. I never thought hearing a kid singing about shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die would bring me such joy, but it does. It most certainly does.

I saw this yesterday! It was adorable. But, one bone to pick. The title says this is a five-year-old boy. A boy? Really?

Have you heard of the Utah Rockabilly band Mad Max & the Wild Ones? Their youngest kid Duke is the vocalist - quite adorable. Pompadour and all!
