Stars to Celebrate JohnnyCash’s 80th With Concert


A diverse all-star lineup will
celebrate the 80th birthday of
Johnny Cash with an April
concert.
Kenny Chesney, Kris
Kristofferson, Lucinda Williams,
Ray LaMontagne and Jamey
Johnson are among the
performers scheduled to appear
in “We Walk the Line: A
Celebration of the Music of
Johnny Cash” on April 20 at the
Austin City Limits Live venue in
Austin, Texas.
Chris Cornell, Ronnie Dunn,
Carolina Chocolate Drops, Amy
Lee and Shooter Jennings also
will perform. Tickets go on sale
Wednesday.
Though Cash died in 2003 at 71,
interest in his music and legacy
continue. Several celebrations are
planned. Members of the Cash
family gathered Sunday in Dyess,
Ark., on what would have been
Cash’s 80th birthday for the
groundbreaking on a museum at
his boyhood home.
