Country legend to be remembered at the scene of his glory days...
Johnny Cash will receive a public memorial in NASHVILLE.
The country legend, who died earlier this month aged 71, will be remembered on November 12 at the Ryman Auditorium. The site is the former home of the Grand Ole Opry – the iconic country theatre where Johnny Cash once hosted a television show, as well as playing innumerable gigs, according to Billboard.
A star-studded list of country artists are expected to take part in the memorial, with details expected in the coming weeks. Tickets for the event will be free.
The two-month delay came about because Johnny Cash’s family wished to be involved in the memorial. The legend’s son, John Carter Cash, is on a European tour until the beginning of November.
Johnny Cash died on September 12 of respiratory failure brought about by complications from diabetes. A private funeral took place on September 15.
