Tommy Cash (born April 5, 1940) is an American musician, singer and songwriter. His elder brother was Johnny Cash.
Cash was born in Dyess, Arkansas in 1940, the youngest of four sons and three daughters of Ray and Carrie (Rivers) Cash (one of whom was Johnny Cash, born eight years earlier). He formed his first band in high school. After high school graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and worked as a disc jockey for the American Forces Radio Network.
After the Army, Cash played with Hank Williams, Jr., and eventually gained a record deal from Musicor Records in 1965. A year later, he joined United Artists Records and just missed the Country Top 40 in 1968 with "The Sounds of Goodbye."
In late 1969, while on Epic Records, he delivered his biggest hit, a tune dedicated to John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, entitled "Six White Horses." 1970 saw a pair of Top Ten singles, "One Song Away" and "Rise and Shine", written by Carl Perkins. Cash's final Top 20 hit, "I Recall a Gypsy Woman," was released in 1973.
Cash continues to record albums and perform concerts around the world.
Cash is a licensed realtor in Tennessee, and an agent with Crye-Leike Real Estate Services in Nashville. He was listing agent for the sale of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash's home in Hendersonville, Tennessee after they both died in 2003.
