In August, 2019, The John R. Cash Revocable Trust filed a complaint against Johnny and June’s, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company, and its owners, Dustin and Kathy Smith, in order to protect its trademarks and rights of publicity related to the world-renown musicians, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. The parties are pleased to announce that the case has been settled.
Johnny and June’s has operated in Flora, Illinois as a multi-use event space for weddings, private events, and concerts since 2016. As of November 15, 2019, Johnny and June’s will be known as Venue 720. Venue 720 will provide the same services and space for events as it did under its former name. Its owners have the utmost respect for Johnny and June Carter Cash and their contribution as legacy artists to American music.
The John R. Cash Revocable Trust appreciates the willingness of Dustin and Kathy Smith to recognize the trademarks and rights of publicity related to Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, the Trust’s duty to protect the same, and to comply with the requests of the Trust.
