Johnny Cash Birthday Bash comes to the Revelry Room
If he were with us today, Johnny Cash he would still be rocking stages all over the nation at the age of 84. He was one of the greatest performers of the past century, combining country, rock, blues and gospel into a unique—and unmistakable—sound.
Commemorating him is no easy feat, but Chattanooga is willing to try. On Saturday, Cash’s birthday, the Revelry Room is hosting The Johnny Cash Bash in his honor with headliner Channing Wilson performing hits of Cash’s all night long.
Wilson is an obvious choice, as his own music is down to earth and realistic, reminiscent of Cash. In his hit, “Nowhere to Go”, Wilson sings, “The days and the nights seem to run together / nothing ever changes except for the weather.” These words could’ve been written by Cash himself. There’s no better way to honor him than by someone who has a soul kindred to his.
Cash brought joy and vibrancy into the lives of those who heard his music and although he isn’t here to give his two cents now, it will never stop his music from echoing in the ears of those who loved him.
