Country Star's Boyhood Home Could Complete Southern Music Tourism Trifecta

Jkschriwer, Wikimedia Commons
Johnny Cash's boyhood home of Dyess, Arkansas is undergoing a $3.5 million makeover in an effort to lure tourists to the area. That means tourists can soon (ahem) walk the line(s) between Nashville, Memphis and Dyess on what could be the ultimate southern music trifecta. Okay, nobody will probably actually walk the distance between these three places, but it is kind of cool that resources will be in place so people can easily visit the homes of Elvis Presley, Taylor Swift and Johnny Cash -- plus lots of other musicians, too -- on their very own homes of the stars tour through the south.
