Los Angeles, CA (March 24, 2014) – Lucky Brand announced today that they are expanding their ongoing partnership with original American icon, Johnny Cash -- the “Man in Black” -- in honor of the March 25 release of a lost Johnny Cash album, Out Among The Stars (Columbia/Legacy).
The new Johnny Cash album, Out Among the Stars, is different. It’s an actual lost LP by the Man in Black -- an entire disc that was supposed to come out back in the mid-1980s but was shelved by Cash’s record company before it could be completed.
