BBC NEWS Row over 'political' Cash tribute

Looks like cash is still king where Republicans are concerned.

A planned tribute to late country star Johnny Cash at next week's Republican convention in New York has attracted harsh criticism from some fans. Cash, who died in September, never revealed his political leanings.

Some of us might have thought it was obvious.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times
Johnny Cash Man in Black

Cash's daughter Rosanne said the Cash estate did not object to the event because it was based on the 'personal relationship between our family and [Senator Lamar] Alexander and NOT as a show of support for the Republican agenda'.
