Johnny Cash Museum opens doors in Music City

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Man in Black now has a permanent home in Music City. The Johnny Cash Museum celebrated its grand opening Thursday.

Founder, Bill Miller told Nashville's News 2 the museum is the culmination of a lifelong dream.

"I became a Johnny Cash fan of at the age of nine in 1969," he said.  

"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 Johnny Cash Museum is located at 119 3rd Avenue South, in the heart of downtown Nashville.

The museum's grand opening comes just one week after the Music City Center opened and a week before CMA Music Fest takes over the city.
 
The Johnny Cash Museum is open every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

General admission is $14 with discounts for students and members of the military, among others.
