NASHVILLE, TN.- “One piece at a time,” The Johnny Cash Museum 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Many never before seen historical documents, letters, awards, costumes and instruments take the visitor on a three dimensional journey through Johnny Cash’s life with innovative interactions via the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.
