Musical tributes will be provided by Kris Kristofferson, Sheryl Crow and Emmylou Harris. Kristofferson will join producer Jack Clement and Cash’s longtime manager, Lou Robin, in offering eulogies. Other speakers will include former Vice President Al Gore. Cash died Friday (Sept. 12) following a lengthy illness. A public memorial service is being planned, although no date has been finalized.
