The Old State House Museum honored Rosanne Cash Saturday for her contributions to the development of Arkansas history and culture.

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.
