    Now, this is what we call "flipping" a house. Arkansas State University purchased Johnny Cash's childhood home in Dyess, Arkansas with plans to restore it and turn it into a museum! They will fund the restoration, renovation and flipping thanks to the inaugural Johnny Cash Music Festival. The festival will take place on August 4th at the school.

    The bill is populated by Cash's friends and relatives including daughter Rosanne Cash, brother Tommy Cash, son John Carter Cash and country singers George Jones and Kris Kristofferson.

    Will you be attending the inaugural Johnny Cash Music Festival?
