Nashville writer Ken Beck interviews Joanne Cash Yates and Tommy Cash, the surviving siblings of the late country music giant Johnny Cash, about their formative years on an East Arkansas cotton farm in Dyess, Arkansas. “I lived there first 17 years of my life. I know where every table was, every lamp, the piano, the pictures,” says Yates about the house where her parents Ray and Carrie Cash raised their seven children: Roy, Margaret Louise, Jack, J.R. (Johnny), Reba, Joanne and Tommy. In the article, the second Johnny Cash Music Festival is discussed along with Arkansas State University’s fundraising efforts for the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home Project, which will preserve the heritage of the Dyess Colony.
