Dyess in Arkansas was founded in 1934 as a planned community built as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt New Deal program. The main purpose was to give poor families a chance to start over with land which could work toward owning.
Johnny Cash family, who worked in the cotton business, moved to Dyess in 1935. Then, one year after the foundation, when the artist was three years old. The country music legend lived there until he was 18 years old.
Now, the pretty house where Johnny Cash lived during his childhood, has opened to the public. Dyess wants to improve its image and attract tourism.
It’s a quiet village full of nice people, and the landscape is beautiful. If you love peaceful places and Johnny Cash music, it’s time to visit Dyess. It’s worth!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you! Summer is wonderful!

“The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all I’ve got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.” Johnny Cash.
