Although he’s most remembered as a country music icon, his genre-blending style was also embraced by rock ‘n’ roll and influenced artists like Bob Dylan and Trent Reznor. His crossover appeal earned him a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.
The celebration of his life and music will be produced by Cash’s son John Carter Cash, who will serve as executive band leader, and will feature performances from Paul Cauthen, Ana Cristina, Ira Dean, Nikki Lane, Terry McBride, Bill Miller, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Worsham, Mike Ness of Social Distortion, Eilen Jewell, L.A. punk band X, and WS Holland. The concert will be broadcast from the Playhouse Square Theater in Cleveland, Ohio.
