Music fans in the Ozarks are mourning the death of Steve Cash, a founding member of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.

Cash, who was 73, helped form the southern rock band in 1971, and spent the next 48 years with the group.

The band released a statement saying Cash “may be gone from this Earth, but his lyrics and music will live on forever.”

The Daredevils, who were from Springfield, hit the charts in the 70’s with hits like “Jackie Blue” and “If You Wanna Go To Heaven.”
