JOHNNY CASH MUSIC FESTIVAL
7 p.m. Arkansas State University. $38-$150.

The Johnny Cash Music Festival enters its third year this weekend, and according to a recent press release from Arkansas State University (which hosts the event), one part of the festival's mission is nearly in sight: The restoration of the Cash boyhood home in Dyess is scheduled to be complete and the museum open in the spring. The festival's proceeds also help fund a scholarship to ASU, which four students currently enrolled at the university have benefited from.

The lineup this year skews a bit more toward the mainstream '80s-'90s side of the country spectrum, with hitmaker Vince Gill as headliner, joined by Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Jimmy Fortune (of The Statler Brothers), and hosts Tommy Cash and Joanne Cash.
