“We are so grateful that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is honoring Johnny Cash for the 2016 Annual Music Masters series,” John Carter Cash said in a statement. “Our father remains one of the most enduring names in entertainment history, and this recognition helps further his legacy and inspire both existing fans as well as a whole new generation of Johnny Cash fans.”
The weeklong event kicks off October 17th, and will also include a fan celebration at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on October 22nd. The concert will take place at Playhouse Square’s State Theatre, with a lineup that has yet to be announced.
