Home Of Johnny Cash Hopes History Will Help It Rise – The New York Times

DYESS, Ark. – On Saturday, Dyess will unveil the refurbished Johnny Cash Boyhood Home and the slick new Dyess Colony Museum, which is housed in the original New Deal administration building, also renovated. The combined tour of the two sites will cost a visitor $10. Half the proceeds will go to Arkansas State University, which owns and manages the facilities; the other half will go to Dyess.

The grand opening will include appearances by Mr. Cash’s daughter, Rosanne, and his two surviving siblings, Tommy and Joanne Cash. On the eve of the opening, in nearby Jonesboro, the country stars Loretta Lynn and Reba McEntire will headline the Johnny Cash Music Festival.
