LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Feb. 26 is on its way to being “Johnny Cash Day” in Arkansas.
The Arkansas House has voted 92-0 to send a measure honoring Cash on his birthday to Gov. Asa Hutchinson.
His office says Hutchinson plans to sign it.
The day will be a memorial day rather than a legal holiday.
It will be marked by an annual proclamation from the governor.
Cash was born in the tiny town of Kingsland, Arkansas, in 1932.
