Johnny Cash Heritage Festival history
Johnny Cash, dubbed "The Man in Black" for his inclination to wear all black on stage, is one of the best-selling and most beloved country music artists of all time. Throughout his life, Cash sold more than 90 million records around the globe. His music, a rare blend of folk, gospel, rock and roll and blues, appealed to many outside of the traditional country genre. Best known for his rebellious attitude, Cash had deep yet soothing voice and poignant lyrics. His most popular hits include "I Walk the Line", "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Ring of Fire." Additionally, he recorded comedic numbers such as a "A Boy Named Sue" and "One Piece at a Time." While best known for his music, Cash also appeared in a number of films and television shows, including hosting his own show, The Johnny Cash Show from 1969 to 1971. Cash's most notable appearances include guest appearances on Saturday Night Live, Little House on the Prairie, Sesame Street and The Partridge Family. He also acted as a narrator for several films such as The Hunted, Gene Autry, Melody of the West and The Gospel Road. Since Cash's death in 2003, there have been countless events held to cherish and preserve his memory around the world. A successful celebration at the University of Arkansas for four years, however, led to the creation of the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival.
The festival is unique in that the proceeds from Johnny Cash Heritage Festival tickets go directly to restoring Cash's family home. The home and surrounding property is relevant to American history just as much as it is to the star's legacy itself. The property, obtained through the New Deal act in Dyess, Arkansas was once one of the largest agricultural colonies in America. The Festival itself takes place in a former cotton field where Cash picked cotton as a child. The festival will feature music by musicians such as Kris Kristofferson, Buddy Jewell and The Vikki McGee Three.
