The Grand Ole Opry will honor and celebrate the life and legacy of one of music’s most influential artists, Johnny Cash on the 20th anniversary of his passing, Tuesday, September 12.

The Tennessee Four is comprised of Cash’s oldest grandson, Thomas Gabriel, on vocals and musicians who played with Cash: Paul Leim (drums), Kerry Marx (guitar), Dave Roe (bass).
