Giving credit where credit is due.

The Grand Ole Opry is set to host a night to celebrate the career and legacy of the great Johnny Cash, on the 20th anniversary of his passing.

The tribute is slated for Tuesday, September 12th, dubbed the “Opry Honors Johnny Cash.”

There’s not much that needs to be said about Cash’s legendary career. He’s a member of The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, The Country Music Hall of Fame, the Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame, and the Kentucky Center Honor, and to this day he remains one of the most popular country artists of all time, 20 years after his death.

The tribute show will feature a loaded list of performers, such as Rodney Crowell, The Gatlin Brothers, Chris Janson, Jamey Johnson, The War and Treaty, and William Beckman, along with the Tennessee Four’s Opry debut, which features Cash’s oldest grandson, Thomas Gabriel, and musicians who’ve played with Cash such as Paul Leim, Kenny Marx, and Dave Roe.

Needless to say, this is one you not gonna wanna miss, as we’re talking about arguably the most influential singer/songwriters in the history of country music.

It’s a well-deserved tribute to the country legend, who definitely belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Country Music.
