Johnny Cash festival set for Aug. 17 in Jonesboro, Arkansas

JONESBORO — The third annual Johnny Cash Music Festival is set for next month at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. Vince Gill is headlining the event, which raises money for the restoration of Cash's boyhood home in Dyess. The show will also feature the Gatlin Brothers, Jimmy Fortune and Joanne Cash Yates. The festival also funds scholarships in Cash's name for students at ASU.

 

Gatlin says he's grateful that the event will raise money for students who can't afford college. He says Cash and his late wife, June Carter Cash, are "smiling down from heaven" because of it.

 

Tickets for the Johnny Cash Music Festival are available at ASU's Central Box Office and online at www.tickets.astate.edu.
