Johnny Cash Heritage Festival

JCHF - 2018

John Alexander, author of the recently released biography of Johnny Cash that explores the music legend’s life through his songs, will headline the list of symposium speakers at the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 18-20, in Dyess.

“I am thrilled beyond words to be speaking at the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival this year,” said Alexander. “So much of Cash’s incredible body of work is steeped in his Arkansas childhood in Dyess.  I’m looking forward to visiting the house that he grew up in that inspired songs he wrote such as ‘Five Feet High and Rising,’ and chose to record like ‘Mississippi Delta Land.’

“The restoration of the Cash family home acknowledges the significance of his Arkansas roots.  I can’t think of a better place to talk about Cash’s legacy.”    MORE
