“ONE PIECE AT A TIME” CAR IMMORALIZED BY JOHNNY CASH ROLLS INTO CMA FAN FEST THIS WEEK
FANS WILL GLIMPSE RARE COUNTRY MUSIC HISTORY WITH ONE-OF-A KIND CADILLAC AS  A STAR OF THE SHOW AT MUSIC CITY CENTER

(NASHVILLE, TN)– June 8, 2017 –When the doors open today at CMA’s exhibit floor display space at the Music City Center in Nashville, fans will encounter a “star” of a different kind ready to greet them!
The “One Piece At A Time” car immoralized in song by Johnny Cash
in his #1 hit song of the same name, has its’ hubcaps polished and is
ready to star as a major attraction this week for fans young and old.
As described in the Cash story song hit, written by Wayne Kemp which reached #1 on the Billlboard Country Singles Chart
in 1976, the car is a one-of-a-kind collection of  authentic Cadillac
parts assembled–as the song relates– over a 25 year “steal” from the
GM assembly line in Detroit.  Though no two parts match on the finished
model–best described as a kissing cousin to a Sedan DeVille and Coupe
Deville– the “OPAAT” car is a “ride” that any country music fan would
love.
Now
40 plus years since the original hit made it famous, the results of
stardom are still gleaming on the behemoth of a vehicle that Cash
featured on video during his concert events and drove multiple times for
personal appearance and special events. .The car was built as a gift
for the legendary “Man in Black” and housed by him for years as a
centerpeice at the original Cash Museum in Hendersonville.
Now
a legend in its own right, the car’s days on the road are limited to
rare personal appearances–such as this week’s roll-out for CMA music
fans. The much beloved ride has found a permanent new home to park at The Storytellers Museum and  The Hideaway Farm in 
Bon Aqua, Tennessee–sites steeped in Cash history that are
anticipating a steady stream of country music lovers during the next few
days of CMA events.
But this week for the flood of fans who will be fascinated–the “One Piece At A Time” car is resting its’ wheels and revving up photo ops on the CMA event floor at Music City Center–booth 280 hosted by its new owners in Bon Aqua.
And yes–it will be dressed in black!.
ABOUT THE STORYTELLERS MUSEUM: : Housed within the newly opened “Storytellers Museum
in Bon Aqua the new home of the historic “Little Stage” was originally
the landmark General Store, Equipped later with a recording studio and
often used by Johnny Cash as the stage of choice for regular Hickman
County  “guitar pulls” that included Cash family members—June, The
Carter Family—and friends like Waylon Jennings and Carl Perkins–the
site has deep music roots. 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 interested in the Cash
memorablia as well as the other rare one-of-a kind treasures including
“The One Piece At A Time” car. 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
100 acre farm owned for more than 30 years by Johnny Cash.  Considered
his retreat The Hideaway Farm
houses the creative spirit and the musical history of its former
owner–who called the land and the stately rustic home, “the center of
my universe.” The site is open to the public for regular tours.

Located
just 40 minutes west of downtown Nashville, both The Storytellers
Museum and The Hideaway Farm are rapidly becoming the newest “must see:”
music destinations in Middle Tennessee.  For complete schedule details
