Johnny Cash Heritage Festival Closes Out With Concert

DYESS, Ark. — Day three closed the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival in grand style at the cotton field concert adjacent to the boyhood home of the legendary singer and songwriter. Cash’s daughter Rosanne, a four-time Grammy winner, led a group of talented entertainers through five hours of music, including three-time Grammy winner Kris Kristofferson, Johnny’s youngest sister Joanne Cash, the youngest Cash sibling Tommy Cash, and area country music artist Buddy Jewell.

After immensely successful music events honoring Cash and benefitting restoration of his boyhood home, a new chapter began in 2017 with the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival. The new event combined educational activities in Dyess, as well as entertainment and special events, to continue the legacy of the earlier concert series held in Jonesboro.

“Welcome to the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival,” announced Rosanne to an enthusiastic crowd who gathered to enjoy the outdoor concert. “We are so thankful to Arkansas State University because of all the university has done since 2011 to make all of this happen today.”   MORE
