Johnny Cash has been gone for a seven years, but he still looms large.  "Ain't No Grave," the title track from his final album (released earlier this year) is nominated for a Grammy in the Best Short Form Video category. It's a pretty extraordinary effort - it was created through an online project where people got to contribute frames to the video. Over 250,000 people contributed. Well, watch the below video - it explains the project and then shows the entire video.

"Ain't No Grave" has stiff competition: Eminem and Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie," Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You," Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and Gorillaz/Mos Def/Bobby Womack's "Stylo." I really like all of those, but I'd love to see "Ain't No Grave" win.
