It’s finally open, the new Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville! On opening day lines were around the block and the male staff wear black and have slicked back hair. If you’re a CASH fan, this is a pilgrimage.
This a glimpse of some of the exhibits (yes photos are legal, just no recording devices!)
Step inside the Johnny Cash Museum!
Johnny through the ages with soundtracks of hits at each stage
Just a few of his gold albums
High tech and retro all in the same room
Johnny sings the old ragged flag on this video of him in concert with the lyrics hand written on each side
Suffering from writer’s block Johnny writes his way through it. Awesome advice for young players, be it musician or journalist. “I’m going to try to write now. I’m not sure I can but I’m going to try…”
A shot of him in the recording studio at the sound desk
With the Highway Men his career had another lease of life
The Carter family costumes when he used to sing with June, her sisters and their mother. Nice frocks ladies.
