JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A popular event honoring the life of Mississippi County native Johnny Cash returns virtually this year.

“This exciting benefit event raises funds to continue our mission of bringing attention to the rich history of my father in the Arkansas Delta and the New Deal-era colony where he was raised, Cash said.
