One thing bluegrass-country singer Marty Stuart will not be doing following his performance Saturday in Starkville, Miss., is picking flowers.

Stuart and his band, the Fabulous Superlatives, will be in town for the Johnny Cash Flower Pickin' Festival Friday through Sunday. A ceremonial pardon will be presented to the family of the "Man in Black" on Saturday.

In some versions of the famous story, Cash was arrested in Starkville more than 40 years ago for picking flowers in someone's yard.

Stuart, a native of Philadelphia, Miss., was a longtime friend of Cash and performed with the singer.

Stuart told The Associated Press in a recent interview, "I can tell you one thing. I won't be pulling no flowers."
