The late Johnny Cash was remembered and honoured by fellow artists at a tribute gig in NASHVILLE last night (November 10).
The show was opened by Johnny Cash’s daughter Roseanne, who sang her father’s ‘I Still Miss Someone.
In a message recorded especially for the tribute, Bono paid his respects to the legend. “He was an oak tree in a garden of weeds,” said the U2 frontman, whilst toasting Johnny Cash with a pint of Guinness. “He’s not in a garden of weeds now. He’s in heaven with June where all the saints are.”
“This is truly a tribute,” she said “It’s a way for us to celebrate the music they brought to the world.
As previously reported on NME.COM, a five-disc Johnny Cash box set featuring 64 unreleased songs will be released on November 25.
