Celebrating Johnny Cash

It is to Arkansas, to the town of Dyess, that members Cash’s family will return on February 26th, the eightieth anniversary of his birth, to celebrate ground breaking on the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home Project. Under the stewardship of Arkansas State University, the project is intended to be be a permanent tribute to Cash’s early life and that of his family.

In this eightieth year since his birth, Nashville, Tennessee, where he spent much of his music career, will see a new legacy from Johnny Cash, as well. It was announced recently that plans are underway for a Johnny Cash Museum, to be located on Third Avenue South, not far form the Country Music Hall of Fame and a short walk from the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Rosanne Cash, herself a professional musician and songwriter, says “ This entire year we celebrate not just [my father’s] roots and history, but the breadth and depth of his artistic legacy, his spirit and authenticity, and the love and rhythm he brought to all our lives which continues to inspire millions of people around the globe.”
