Johnny Cash Music Fest Raises $200,000 with Help of Dierks Bentley and Willie Nelson

Sony/LegacyDierks Bentley and Willie Nelson were among the stars on the bill for Friday night's second annual Johnny Cash Music Festival in Jonesboro, AR.  The concert raised about $200,000 to benefit the effort to restore Cash's childhood home in Dyess, AR.  A portion of the proceeds will also go to fund a scholarship established in Johnny Cash's name.

Johnny's daughter Rosanne Cash and his brother Tommy Cash and sister Joanne Cash Yates were also on hand for the concert.  Plans are already underway for next year's event, which will recognize the 10th anniversary of Cash's death.
