Cash, the daughter of country music legend Johnny Cash, has been working with Arkansas State University and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to help restore her father's boyhood home in Dyess.
The museum has artifacts from childhood pictures to a suit worn by the "Man in Black."
"It's great. It's, it's very moving you know," Rosanne Cash said. "I'm happy it's here in Arkansas. It's nice to know that they're being well taken care of in his home state."
Cash received the Speaker of the House award at today's ceremony.
Her new album, "The River and the Thread" is set to be released on January 14.
