Plans are well underway for the first annual Johnny Cash Music Festival benefit concert, set for Thursday, Aug. 4, at Arkansas State University's Convocation Center.
The inaugural concert will star Cash's children Rosanne Cash and John Carter Cash, his younger brother Tommy Cash and John Carter's wife Laura Cash, along with country music greats George Jones, Kris Kristofferson, Dailey & Vincent, Gary Morris and Rodney Crowell, as well as Rosanne's and Crowell's daughter Chelsea Crowell.
The concert will raise money to help restore the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home in the agricultural resettlement community of Dyess, Ark., which is between Jonesboro and Memphis. Arkansas State University (ASU) recently acquired the original Cash home and also plans the establishment of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Museum in the New Deal Era Administration Building at Dyess.
