Lorrie Bennett, daughter of legendary Carter family member Anita Carter and a vocalist and songwriter in her own right has joined the musical lineup. Lorrie will bring classic Carter family tunes to enchant and entertain our guests.
Chance Martin, longtime friend and colleague of Cash’s will appear at the celebration as well. Chance (AKA Alamo Jones on Sirius XM Outlaw Country) was a guest at our last celebration and is a favorite among our attendees.
NEW PRESENTATION/PANEL ADDED
Called his “family historian,” by Johnny Cash, writer, author and lecturer Mark Stielper, has been added to the line-up of events at this year’s Celebration. Museum founder Bill Miller said, “Mark Stielper has been a friend of mine and of the Cash family for decades. He is the primary expert on all aspects of Johnny’s life and career and gives compelling, entertaining talks. We’re excited that he will be joining us again this year.” Panelists during Stielper’s presentation will include Cash colleagues from his TV career as well as Melanie Safka, who was a guest on the Johnny Cash Show ABC series.
