The Johnny Cash Museum will add a new relic to its display tomorrow (Aug. 15).
On display will be the famous drum set used by W.S. “Fluke” Holland, who was Cash’s drummer for 40 years. The drum set was used on numerous Sun Records recordings including Cash’s “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Ring of Fire” as well as Presley’s “Blue Suede Shoes.”
Holland’s drum set is legendary in the country music community as it was the first full drum set to appear on the Grand Ole Opry stage. It was also used on Cash’s Live at Folsom Prison and Live at San Quentin albums, as well as Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline record.
