After several years of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro hosting benefit concerts to raise money for the restoration of Johnny Cash's boyhood home, this year the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival debuts in Dyess just outside the Cash homeplace. And of course the Arkansas Times is chartering a bus to be there. The lineup is spectacular: Kris Kristofferson (one of the greatest songwriters of all-time easily), Rosanne Cash, Joanne Cash and Tommy Cash and Buddy Jewel.

For $109, you get roundtrip transportation, a ticket to the festival, adult beverages on the ride, a delicious box lunch from Boulevard Bread Co. Plus, local singer/songwriter Jason Lee Hale will provide on-bus entertainment. Tickets are available at centralarkansastickets.com. The bus leaves at 9 a.m. at the old Ray Winder field, UAMS parking lot. You're encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.
