Johnny Cash, Steve Cropper, Miranda Lambert Given Music City Walk Of Fame Stars

Johnny Cash has been inducted in the Music City Walk of Fame.

The country music legend was posthumously honored and his youngest brother, Tommy Cash, represented the icon, who now has a star on the Music City Walk of Fame, during an induction ceremony yesterday (October 6) at Walk of Fame Park in Nashville, Tennessee.

Asked what Cash”s reaction would be if he were still alive, Tommy, 75, mused: “‘Well, I got another plaque’, but he deserved it, and he also deserved the Johnny Cash Museum.”

Cash had a string of hits including I Walk The Line, A Boy Named Sue and even covered Nine Inch Nails’ track Hurt months before he passed away in 2003, aged 71, as a result of complications from diabetes.

The singer/songwriter, who was portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix in biopic movie Folsom Prison Blues while Reese Witherspoon played his wife June, is sorely missed by his family.

Tommy added: “I miss him very much. He”s been gone 12 years, and June Carter Cash has been gone, but their spirits and their genuineness is here in this plaque.”

Mamas Broken Heart singer Miranda Lambert, rock guitar great Steve Cropper and influential executive E.W. “Bud” Wendell were also inducted at the ceremony, which Miranda said took her “breath away”.

She said previously: “I want to congratulate my fellow inductees, Steve Cropper … and the legendary Johnny Cash – just saying his name alongside mine, takes my breath away.”
