Candlelight vigil to mark decade since Johnny Cash died

Posted: Updated:

It's been a decade since we lost one of the men who defined country music. Johnny Cash, the Man in Black, died 10 years ago Thursday.

Friends and family are gathering for a candlelight ceremony to mark the date at 9 p.m. at Hendersonville Memory Gardens.

That's located, appropriately enough, at 353 Johnny Cash Parkway in Hendersonville.

Earlier this year, the new Johnny Cash Museum opened its doors on 3rd Avenue South, between Broadway and Demonbreun Street.

Fans can see the items and memorabilia that helped define the legendary singer. His gold records, guitars and Grammys have been collected over the years by friend and fan, Bill Miller.

"Without question, this is in honor and tribute to Johnny Cash, and there's nothing better that I could have done to honor my friend," said Miller, founder of the museum.

More than 600 items were donated to the collection by the Cash family, colleagues and friends.
