Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Ronnie Dunn, John Hiatt, Shooter Jennings, Lucinda Williams and More to Pay Tribute to Johnny Cash

A star-studded lineup of musicians will join together for “We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash”, taking place at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theatre in Austin, TX on April 20. Marking the year that would be Cash’s 80th birthday, the tribute concert will feature performances by Willie Nelson, Chris Cornell, Ronnie Dunn, Jamey Johnson, Kris Kristofferson, Ray LaMontagne, Amy Lee, Lucinda Williams, Brandi Carlile, Andy Grammer, John Hiatt, Shooter Jennings, Rhett Miller and more. The legendary Don Was will lead the backing band which includes Buddy Miller, Kenny Aronoff, Ian McLagen, and Greg Leisz.

“Our family is honored to know that this amazing line-up of artists will gather together on one stage to pay tribute to the music and history of my father,” says John Carter Cash. “There is no doubt in my mind that, although he is no longer with us in body, his spirit will shine true on this night thanks to these inspired artists.”
