(Gibson) Marshall Grant, who was the last surviving member of the iconic Johnny Cash & Tennessee Two, died this weekend. He was 83.

Not only was Grant an integral part of the famous Cash "boom-chicka-boom" sound, but he acted as Cash's road manager throughout the '60s and '70s.

According to Nashville's Tennessean newspaper, Johnny Cash's daughter, Rosanne Cash paid the following tribute: "Had Dad not had Marshall, he wouldn't have had the 'Johnny Cash Sound,' and he wouldn't have become all that he was, in his fullness. And I wouldn't have become a songwriter or a musician. There's a whole lineage that wouldn't have happened." more on this story
