(Gibson) Johnny Cash's boyhood home will be saved for posterity. Arkansas State University has purchased the Dyess, Arkansas, home and announced plans to restore the house's structure and create a museum.

At a press conference Thursday, a spokesman for the university said that the plans would be paid for by proceeds generated by an annual Johnny Cash Music Festival.

The inaugural festival has been slated for August 4 at ASU's convention center. All of the artists announced for the festival were either friends or relatives of the late country legend. The list of performers, which is still growing, includes Cash's daughter Rosanne Cash, brother Tommy Cash, son John Carter Cash, and friends Rodney Crowell, George Jones, Gary Morris and Kris Kristofferson. more on this story
