  • Willie Nelson will headline the second Johnny Cash Music Festival.

The organizers of the Johnny Cash Music Festival just announced this year's lineup and the headliner is none other than Mr. Willie Nelson.

Rosanne Cash will once again emcee the event. She'll also perform, along with Dierks Bentley and The Civil Wars. The concert will broadcast on SiriusXM. The festival is at 7 p.m., Oct. 5 at Arkansas State University's Convocation Center in Jonesboro. Tickets are from $38, $75 for premium and $150 for VIP, which includes a pre-concert meet and greet.

Last year, the Times chartered three buses full of music lovers to the festival and it was a resounding success. Let's try for four buses this year!

UPDATE: Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Get them online right here, or call 888-278-3267.
