On August 16, 2014, after years of fundraising and restoration work, Johnny Cash's boyhood home in Dyess, Arkansas was opened to the public as a museum. Hundreds turned out for the dedication ceremony at the Dyess Administration Building. Featured in the video are Arkansas State University System President Chip Welch, daughter Rosanne Cash, brother Tommy Cash and Dr. Ruth Hawkins, who oversaw the project as executive director of ASU's Arkansas Heritage Sites program. Johnny Cash often spoke about the impact his childhood in Dyess had on him and many of his songs, including "Five Feet High and Rising" and "Pickin' Time" were set there. You can see a slideshow of photos of the home at: http://ualrpublicradio.org/post/hundr...
