Tomorrow, August 4th, Rosanne Cash will head to Jonesboro, AR to headline The Johnny Cash Music Festival, which will serve to establish a museum to honor the Johnny Cash legacy as well as restoring or re-creating his boyhood home. This endeavor is expected to generate 27 new jobs in Mississippi County, with a payroll of $450,000, during the first year of operation. After five years of successful operation, the site is expected to serve as a catalyst for as many as 83 new jobs in the county, with a yearly payroll of $1.35 million. In addition, it is expected to severely boost local tourism.

Aside from Rosanne, expect performances by Kris Kristofferson, George Jones, Rodney Crowell, Chelsea Crowell, Gary Morris, John Carter & Laura Cash, Tommy Cash, Joanne Cash, and more.

The event will be filmed by PBS for future broadcast.
