Officials for the second annual Johnny Cash Music Festival announced the 2012 concert lineup Thursday (May 24) during a press conference at Cooper Alumni Center in Jonesboro, Ark. Rosanne Cash, Willie Nelson, Dierks Bentley, and the Civil Wars are all set to take the stage on Friday, Oct. 5, in tribute to the Man in Black. Proceeds from the event will fund the restoration of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home in Dyess, Ark.
Johnny's son, John Carter Cash was on hand for the announcement and noted, "Rosanne [Johnny's eldest daughter] will be there to represent the family. And Willie Nelson was a dear, dear friend of my father and is very close to our family. He will do a great job along with Dierks Bentley and the Civil Wars. It is a blessing to be back and see the dream continue to become a reality."
