July 9, 2012 at 7:52 AM (PT)
Last year, ARKANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY’s inaugural JOHNNY CASH MUSIC FESTIVAL was so successful that they decided to host the festival again this year. This year’s event will take place on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5th at ASU’s CONVOCATION CENTER, JONESBORO, ARKANSAS and will feature performances by WILLIE NELSON, DIERKS BENTLEY, THE CIVIL WARS and ROSANNE CASH.
“There is a great talent lineup for this year’s event,” said JOHN CARTER CASH. “ROSANNE will be there to represent the family. WILLIE NELSON was a dear, dear friend of my father and is very close to our family. He will do a great job, as will DIERKS BENTLEY and THE CIVIL WARS.”
Similar to last year’s event, the proceeds from the concert this year will benefit a scholarship fund established in JOHNNY CASH’s name as well as funding the restoration of the JOHNNY CASH Boyhood Home in DYESS, ARKANSAS.
