When I was young I recall my grandfather talking about Johnny Cash. He liked Cash’s music and because my grandfather liked Cash’s music, I decided I would like his music as well. I also decided that I needed to know more about Johnny Cash and at 10 years old I wrote a school paper dedicated to the Man in Black.
Over the years, my fondness for Johnny Cash has not changed. I listen to his music, I watched the movie about his life, and my husband and I toured the Johnny Cash museum in Nashville, Tennessee on our honeymoon.
The museum was a fun stop on our road trip to Sevierville. Since I love everything about Johnny Cash and his history, it was neat to see some of his actual belongings. We saw pictures of him and June Carter on their wedding day. Lots of great music played in the background. You could watch video clips of Johnny Cash and his band-mates. There was a ton of information about his life, as well as features on Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis.
If you are a Johnny Cash fan, or you simply like checking out different museums dedicated to music, I would highly recommend this experience. The museum is a self-guided tour. It doesn’t take long to get through it, but you can spend as much time as you like looking around and taking photos.
