JOHNNY CASH MUSEUM TO OPEN IN NASHVILLE

Johnny Cash
A museum dedicated to the life, legends and music of Johnny Cash is being planned in Nashville, Tennessee. The establishment is set to open later this year, according to the Associated Press.

The man behind the museum is Bill Miller, who collect’s Cash memorabilia and operates a Cash website. The museum is planned to open in the Lower Broadway, tourist-friendly section of Nashville, “right in the middle of the hubbub,” according to John Carter Cash, Johnny’s son. The institution will feature a number of items from The House of Cash, a Johnny Cash museum that was located in nearby Henderson, Tennessee, until 1999.

“He’s been an incredible supporter of my dad and one of the largest collectors of memorabilia,” said Cash’s daughter, Rosanne Cash, about Miller. “If anybody has the whole structure to put up a museum, he does. So I have a lot of trust in him and I think it's great at this point. I think he’ll do something with dignity and class that’s historically important, not some kitschy thing. I’m very interested in seeing what he does.”

In addition, Cash’s childhood home in Dyess, Arkansas, is being worked on in order to become an attraction. The house is being restored to its 1930s-40s appearance. Johnny Cash, who died in 2003, would have turned 80 this month.

  1. I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
