The Johnny Cash Museum Immortalizes the Man in Black

The Johnny Cash Museum Immortalizes the Man in Black for Downtown Nashville
*Grand Opening May 30th*
 
“One piece at a time,” The Johnny Cash Museum (JCM) has culminated into an amazing
celebration of The Man in Black. JCM will celebrate its Grand Opening
with a day full of prizes and limited time offers to fans and patrons on
Thursday, May 30th. Located at 119 Third Avenue South
between Demonbreun and Broadway, the museum is en route between the
tourist circulated Broadway strip and the Country Music Hall of Fame and
Schermerhorn Symphony Center .

Founder, Bill Miller says the museum
is the culmination of a lifelong dream. “I became a Johnny Cash fan of
at the age of nine in 1969. I collected everything relating to him I
could get my hands on. As time went on, I met Johnny many times and we
became close friends. Over the years, he and many of his friends and
associates contributed to the collection and I scoured the world for
important pieces. This museum is our tribute to the greatest man I’ve
ever known.”
 
 
The JCM will be open every day from 11 AM to 7 PM CST.  General admission is $14 with discounts for students, members of the military, etc. On Grand Opening day, May 30th, hours will be 11 AM to 8 PM and there will be giveaways of CD’s, limited edition Hatch Show Print  posters and other free gifts all day long.
 

“It’s
indescribable,” says Tommy Cash, Johnny’s younger brother. “There’s so
much to comprehend. I knew all of the memorabilia was somewhere, but to
see it all in one building is an awesome experience. I could spend a
week in here and probably not see every single thing. It’s something
that people that come to Nashville from all over the world will want to
see.”
 
Music Row Magazine writes, “The New Johnny Cash Museum is awesome!”
 
“An extraordinary collection!” writes Peter Cooper of the Tennessean.
 
Many
never before seen historical documents, letters, awards, costumes and
instruments take the visitor on a three dimensional journey through
Johnny Cash’s life with innovative interactions via the Nashville based
Griffin Technologies.
The
museum unites the extensive and acclaimed collection of Bill Miller,
longtime friend of Cash’s and founder of the official Johnny Cash
website
www.JohnnyCash.Com,
and pieces from friends, colleagues and family members including his
daughters, son and siblings. The collection features the earliest known
Johnny Cash letters and documents as well as the handwritten manuscript
to the last song ever written by the prolific songwriter, just days
before his passing. Visitors also will be given an extensive look into
Cash’s non-entertainment related life including his childhood and early
adulthood and his service in the United States Air Force.
