This Day in Music History

Who's doing what now?

Our good friends over at History.com let us know that it was this day in 1986 that Columbia Records made the super awesome decision to drop Johnny Cash from their roster after 26 years.  Being the savvy and brilliant types who cared only about that financial quarter’s bottom line and not how history (or History.com) would judge them, they also dropped Miles Davis from the label earlier that year.
