johnny cashThe music video for the late Johnny Cash's song "God's Gonna Cut You Down" will debut tomorrow evening on CMT, MTV and VH1. It will first appear during the CMT Top 20 Countdown from 4 pm to 7 pm. Later that evening, it will air on both MTV and VH1 at 11 pm. The video will also debut tomorrow on the Web sites for all the aforementioned channel, as well as on MTVU.com and Urge, MTV's music service.

Several musicians and actors will appear in the video, including Iggy Pop, Chris Rock, Dennis Hopper, Patti Smith, Johnny Depp and the Dixie Chicks. Justin Timberlake helped with the concept of the video, which to me is like having a two year old paint a tribute to Leonardo DaVinci, but whatever. As much as they're hyping this video, I think simply popping in a copy of American V: A Hundred Highways and listening to the track is a better option than watching the video.

However, you should tune into CMT at 8pm tomorrow night to catch a re-airing of Johnny Cash in San Quentin, the 1969 film that covered his famous and controversial performance.

I thought the video was very good... The lyrics and people fit together, there is only so far one can go before God cuts you down and brings you back to him, we all need him and its up to us to believe what Jesus said and follow Jesus or live our own sinful apart from God life....I really thought the ironic twist of usuing Celebrities made the video.

my thoughts

Justin Timberlake helped with the concept? If Johnny Cash weren't dead, that would probably be enough to kill him. Knowing that, I think I'll skip the video.
