The Johnny Cash Museum, opened in May 2013, recently unveiled their first temporary exhibit, “The Legends of Sun Records” which will run for 18 months and features artifacts that spotlight Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and drummer W.S. Holland. This list-topping institution, recipient of the coveted AAA GEM rating, has scored endless accolades, including The Tennessee Association of Museum’s 2014 Award of Excellence, and is ranked “#1 Must-Visit Museum for Music Lovers” by Conde Nast, one of “5 Nashville Must-Sees” by Forbes, and by the Huffington Post as one of “22 Reasons You Should Visit Nashville.” Rolling Stone magazine places it in the Top 10 Tennessee Spots for Music Lovers and Money Magazine calls it the “Best Culture Stop in Nashville.”
Cindy Cash, Johnny Cash’s daughter, has this to say about the Music City phenomenon:
“Whatever anybody needs to know about my dad that they don’t know already is in that museum.”
