Johnny Cash's family is celebrating the late singer's birthday with an inaugural bash at the museum set up in his memory in Nashville, Tennessee. The Walk the Line legend would have turned 82 years old on 26 February (14), and to keep his legacy alive, relatives and bosses at The Johnny Cash Museum are hosting a three day star-studded event from 28 February to 2 March (14). Museum founder Bill Miller tells country music site TheBoot.com, "We are thrilled to bring back the Johnny Cash Birthday Celebration and even more so to bring it to Nashville for the first time. "We have a long tradition of bringing Johnny's fans together with his family, friends and peers in an intimate celebration of his life." His son, John Carter Cash, and brother, Tommy Cash, are both expected to perform at the event, which will also feature surprise celebrity guests. Cash died in 2003 at the age of 71 from complications from diabetes. The museum opened last April (13).
