Kris Kristofferson — former boxer, Rhodes scholar, Golden Globe winner, U.S. army helicopter pilot and author of seminal songs like "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Sunday Morning Coming Down" — has been announced as part of the lineup for the inaugural Johnny Cash Heritage Festival, to be held October 19-21 in the cotton field next to Cash's (restored) boyhood home in Dyess, Arkansas.

Kristofferson, who famously convinced Cash to record "Sunday Morning Coming Down" when Kristofferson was working as a janitor at Nashville's Columbia Records, is joined by Rosanne Cash, Joanne and Tommy Cash and Buddy Jewell for the Saturday afternoon concert, 12:15 p.m., which follows a three-day symposium in the Dyess Colony Circle. Tickets are available here, or by calling 870-972-2781.
