Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” Guitar Donated to Musicians Hall

The Guild guitar heard on Johnny Cash’s 1963 hit, “Ring of Fire,” was donated to the new Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum during a Wednesday (July 26) ceremony in downtown Nashville. Marshall Grant, Cash’s longtime bassist and a member of his early band, the Tennessee Two, presented the instrument to the museum that opened to the public in June. Before giving it to Grant as a gift, Cash often performed, wrote and recorded with the guitar.
