This Day in Music: February 26th

On This Day in Music, February 26th...

It is Johnny Cash's birthday! Born in 1932, he topped the charts for the first time in 1957 and was a staple in the music industry for over 50 years before he passed away in 2003.

Michael Jackson breaks down barriers with the album 'Thriller' topping the charts on this date in 1983. It would stay at the top for 37 weeks and is the top-selling album of all time.

Lastly, February 26th is a big day in music history in terms of how it has been sold. In 1955, '45' vinyl records began outselling the traditional '78', and it was on this day in 2008 that iTunes made a major move as a digital music retailer.

February 26th was a big day in music. Johnny Cash was born on this day in 1932, 'Thriller' tops the charts, and how music is sold has changed a lot in the past 50 years.
