Johnny Cash Hurt Video DVD + More

Lost Highway Records mentions on their front page that a DVD of the Mark Romanek directed video for Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt will be made available on March 4 with the release of the Grammy nominated album The Man Comes Around.
Considering how rare it is that people will get a say in what gets played on the radio these days, when you do get a chance, you should speak up. In this case, The Edge in Tulsa has put up a poll asking if they should play Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt on the radio. There's already a healthy lead towards the positive, but if you're in the Tulsa area and haven't already voted, here's where you need to go to voice your opinion on this. Thanks to stinkybano for the link!
