Help support the Johnny Cash Historic Marker and Statue project by attending our Raising Cash fundraiser on Tuesday, January 26th at 1015 Cooper Walker Place. Admission is $5 along with Memphis Made beer for $5 a cup. Fundraiser bricks will also be on sale. All proceeds go toward unveiling a historic marker on May 1st detailing Cash’s first paid performance with the Tennesse Two at the church location (then called Galloway United Methodist Church). Proceeds also go toward an eventual on-site bronze statue of Johnny Cash. The Abbey downstairs where John R. Cash, Luther Perkins and Marshall Grant first performed in 1954 will be open at 7:30 p.m.. Upstairs in the Sanctuary, a Johnny Cash video by local filmmakers Mike McCarthy and Kim Lloyd featuring Cash bass player Marshall Grant and Cash drummer W.S. Holland screens at 8 p.m., along with a personal welcome from co-executive directors of Cooper Walker Place; Sam Garrett and Ken Steorts. Live music from local singer DAN MONTGOMERY opens the show at 8:30 p.m. followed by headliner JOHN PAUL KEITH at 9 p.m.. This is the 1st of 4 “Raising Cash” events coming to Cooper Walker Place and the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood through the end of March. Any questions about giving toward the historic marker and statue please email Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sam at email@example.com.
