The Johnny Cash Heritage Festival closed out in grand style at the cotton field concert adjacent to the boyhood home of the legendary singer and songwriter. Cash’s daughter Rosanne, a four-time Grammy winner, led a group of talented entertainers through five hours of music. The ARTISTS LINEUP also included three-time Grammy winner Kris Kristofferson, Johnny’s youngest sister Joanne Cash, the youngest Cash sibling Tommy Cash, and area country music artist Buddy Jewell. FEATURED SPEAKERS for the festival were Cash biographer Michael Streissguth and author/photographer Bill McDowell.
You think about the idea of returning to your family’s homestead where your father slept as a little boy and it moves you.
