Johnny Cash pickin' festival

In May of 1965, the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, found himself in a jail cell in Starkville, Mississippi after picking flowers while intoxicated and being arrested for public drunkeness. Cash once recalled that he learned in Starkville, Mississippi, that trying to kick the bars out of a jail cell isn’t a good idea - an idea that landed him with a broken toe.

On October 17-19, the second annual Johnny Cash Flower Pickin' Festival will be held in Starkville, where Cash's friends, family, and fans will gather to honor his life and legacy.
