About This Festival
The legacy of the legendary Johnny Cash is lauded annually at the Johnny Cash Music Festival in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Held each August at the Convocation Center of Arkansas State University, the festival has included famous headliners such as Reba McEntire and Bobby Bare. The festival was founded and is annually produced by Bill Carter. Proceeds typically go to the restoration fund for Cash's boyhood home in Dyess and to a scholarship fund in his name.
