Nashville will soon be home to The Johnny Cash Museum, which could house the world’s largest collection of memorabilia from the late country entertainer. Plans call for over 1,000 items to be displayed in the museum, including Cash’s 12th grade report card, a dining room set from his home with wife and country performer June Carter Cash, and handwritten lyrics to the song “My Lord Is Gone,” which Cash penned just days before his death in 2003.
Located at 119 3rd Ave. South, the museum is set to open in 2013. The museum’s store, an 850-square-foot retail space, is already open daily from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Among other items, the retail shop offers autographed vinyl albums, books, T-shirts and photographs.
The Cash family sanctioned friend, biographer and archivist Bill Miller to oversee the museum’s creation. He is investing millions of dollars in the project as well as displaying much of his personal collection.
