Johnny Cash
I just caught wind that Johnny Cash's boyhood home... the uh... home he grew up in as a boy, is going to be restored. I guess in 2011 it was aquired by Arkansas State University, and they'd like to see it restored and saved as a historical building, and also as a tourist attraction to help out the local area, Dyess, which has been struggling.

Several big name country celebrities like Willie Nelson, Dierks Bentley, the Civil Wars and Rosanne Cash will be coming together at The Johnny Cash Music Festival concert to help raise the money.

Also, I found a cover I did of "Hurt", which although was originally written by Trent Reznor, was an awesome cover Johnny Cash did himself that brought the song to life.
