Johnny Cash would have celebrated his 91st birthday this weekend (Sunday, Feb. 26), and you don’t need to “Walk the Line” or dance around “The Ring of Fire” to honor the country music legend. Here are some local ways to commemorate his legacy.



Try This

  • Use Nashville SC’s Apple Maps guide to visit places of sentimental value to Cash — like Ryman Auditorium (where Johnny met June) and The Johnny Cash Museum. Bonus: Map descriptions are direct quotes from Cash’s son John Carter Cash.


  • Play our NASHtoday Cash-inspired playlist while driving down Hendersonville’s Johnny Cash Parkway.
  • Pro tip: Apple Music users can enjoy two exclusive releases on Nashville SC’s playlist — a version of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Bailey Zimmerman and a classic take on “Man in Black” by Carin León.
