It pays to be a Johnny Cash fan: iTunes got a winner for its 10 billionth download contest when a Georgia man bought Cash's "Guess Things Happen That Way" track. Louie Sulcer, a 71-year-old retired real estate broker, gets a $10,000 gift certificate to the iTunes store, Mac Observer reports.

Steve Jobs himself phoned with the news last night, and Roseanne Cash followed up with a thank-you call today, notes the New York Times. She even put hubby and fellow musician John Leventhal on the line to play the song. Sulcer says his three kids and nine grandkids will likely be the biggest spenders.
