Ferris Excited About Special Presentation During Cash Festival

JONESBORO – Much to his disappointment, Dr. William Ferris never got a chance to meet Johnny Cash, but believes the singer-songwriter, actor, author and multi-genre music icon helped to mold his life immeasurably.

Ferris, the Joel R. Williamson Eminent Professor of History Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a featured presenter at the third annual Johnny Cash Heritage Festival in Dyess, Friday, Oct. 18, from 1 to 4:30 p.m., in the Dyess Community Center. Tickets for the special event, hosted by Cash’s daughter Rosanne, are $15.     MORE
