The Kentucky Historical Society will dedicate a new historical marker at 11 a.m. on Friday (June 1) on the west lawn of the Simpson County Courthouse in Franklin, Kentucky. The marker will commemorate the marriage of Johnny Cash and June Carter in 1968 in a surprise wedding that took place in the Methodist Church across the street from the courthouse. The honor of unveiling the bronze marker will go to someone who was present for the wedding 50 years ago – Carlene Carter. Carlene will also perform in concert at 3 p.m. on Saturday (June 2) on an outdoor festival stage in downtown Franklin.
