Johnny’s jumpsuit goes for big cash

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

YUCAIPA, CA – Now if you’re a country kinda guy, you probably wear Levi’s or Wrangler’s and denim shirts and button up jackets. Country guys in embroidered jumpsuits – blue no less? I don’t think so.

But apparently if the jumpsuit was once worn by Johnny Cash, it’s in high demand.

I read in the newspaper this morning that THE jumpsuit (I hope there’s only one) worn by country singer Johnny Cash sold at a Beverly Hills auction for a lotta cash – $50,000 – shelled out by a Belgiun bidder. (When did Belgium go Country Western?)

I can understand collectors bidding ferociously for Cash’s Martin guitar (sold for $50,000, too); or his boots that went for $21,875; or a poster that topped out at $25,000. But a blue jumpsuit? $50,000 no less?

I can’t recall that last time I’ve seen a countrified man wearing a jumpsuit.
