May 6, 2014 -Dallas, Texas, Joanne Cash legendary country music singer will be in concert in Dallas June 12. Christian Women in Media Association will host the evening concert and dinner event. Joanne brings with her an amazing voice and a life spent in the country music industry.

As the younger sister of Johnny Cash, Joanne Cash has certainly made her way in the music industry. With twenty-six historic recordings, the acclaimed autobiography My Fears Are Gone, and continuous concert appearances, the singer/songwriter extraordinaire is driven by a deeper sense of eternal purpose.

Growing up in the Cash family alongside Johnny, plus fellow siblings Reba, Jack, Tommy, Roy and Louise, some of her earliest memories from their Dyess, Arkansas upbringing (the family later migrated to Nashville) was singing spiritual standards in the cotton fields while working in the steamy sun, after which the family would convene inside together for old time radio programs.

On October 18, 1970, Joanne gave her heart to Jesus at a small area church and began a brand new life. It was at that time she found a musical calling while working at House of Cash, Johnny's famed recording studio, office space and musical museum.

"I learned so much about the music business and my desire to sing increased rapidly," offers a jovial Joanne. "I got involved in singing at church and then sang at the Grand Ole Opry on Fridays from 1972-1976 with Jimmy Rodgers Snow's 'Grand Ole Gospel Time.'"

Ms. Cash's testimony can be found on her latest CD Gospel, which includes 15 hymns and original songs, such as Cotton, Popcorn, Peanuts and Jesus (the basic fabric of what Joanne was raised on), and Glory Glory, a bold expression of faith relating to her brother Jack's death and the fact that all the siblings will again be united in heaven. Johnny penned Meet Me in Heaven, which was one of the last songs he and Joanne sang together before his wife June Carter Cash made her heavenly passage. Johnny's 1979 standard Welcome Back Jesus is also included, as is the vintage church hymn Let the Lower Lights Be Burning.

'I'm amazed that at my age I still want to sing, but it's like therapy for me," she summarizes. "Johnny always helped me remember that and he was constantly encouraging. But there was one short phrase from Johnny that's always stuck with me and it's one I'll continue for as long as I'm here, 'Baby, just keep on singing!'"

The Concert and Dinner event with Joanne Cash for men and women will be at the Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas, Texas. The cost of the ticket which includes dinner is $25 for members and $35 for guests. Register online at - registration online is required.
