The Cash house in Dyess, Ark.

Johnny Cash’s boyhood home in Dyess has made the National Register of Historic Places.

… Cash, members of his family, and a long list of biographers have referred to his time in Dyess as key to his later musical career, according to the National Register nomination.

In various interviews, Cash spoke of the importance of his early life in Dyess.

“When we grew up, it was second nature that we wouldn’t live in Dyess when we were grown,” Cash once said. “It was the aim of every person to get a better job. But if I hadn’t grown up there, I wouldn’t be what I am now. It was the foundation for what I became.”
