Tickets go on sale tomorrow for an 80th birthday celebration of the life and music of the late Johnny Cash, to be held April 20th at the Austin City Limits Live venue in Austin, Texas. Kenney Chesney, Lucinda Williams, Kris Kristofferson and Ray LaMontagne will top the bill called "We Walk the Line," with appearances by Jamey Johnson, Chris Cornell, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Shooter Jennings and more.

Cash, who died in 2003 at age 71, would have turned 80 on Sunday. Members of his family, including daughter Rosanne Cash, gathered over the weekend at his boyhood home in Dyess, Arkansas for the groundbreaking of a museum honoring the country music legend.
