About the “Little Stage” at Bon Aqua:
Housed within the newly opened “Storytellers Museum” in Bon Aqua, the
new home of the historic “Little Stage” was originally the landmark
General Store in Bon Aqua—converted later into a recording studio and
often used by Johnny Cash as the stage of choice for regular “guitar
pulls” that included Cash family members—June Carter Cash and The Carter
Family—and friends like Waylon Jennings and Carl Perkins.  The “Little
Stage” would become the regular home of the “Saturday Night In Hickman
County” performances by local musicians. The old General Store is now
beautifully restored as “The Storytellers Museum”–and the” welcome mat”
is out to a new generation of music–and storytellers. The Little Stage
is now open and featuring live music.
About “The Hideaway Farm”:
Just over the hill from the “Storytellers Museum,” nestled in the
rolling landscape of Hickman County, sits the pre-Civil War log home and
farm owned for more than 30 years by Johnny Cash.  Considered his
“creative retreat,”  the Hideaway Farm, now open to the public, houses
the memories and spirit of its’ former owner—who called the land and the
stately rustic home “The center of my universe.”
Both the Storytellers Museum and The Hideaway Farm
are open to the public and rapidly becoming the new “must see” tourist
destination for music lovers. They are located off I-40 West at TN Exit
172, Hwy 46S in Bon Aqua–a short drive west of Nashville.  Phone:
931-996-4336 for hours and ticket information or resource online.
