Nashville’s Johnny Cash Museum Set To Expand

Johnny Cash Museum

The Johnny Cash Museum is set to expand its location at 119 3rd Avenue South in Nashville, with a new wing slated to open in mid-February 2016.

Construction starts today (Monday, Jan. 4) to increase exhibit space by 40 percent. The new space will make room for additional exhibits and artifacts.

Additionally, The Nashville Post reports that a 24-hour diner concept, Sun Diner Cafe, will soon reside at 105 3rd Ave. S., adjacent to the Johnny Cash Museum. T.C. Restaurant Group, which also owns Nashville’s Tequila Cowboy, Luigi City Pizza, and WannaB’s Karaoke Bar, is behind the project. No opening date has been released.

Sun Diner Cafe will pay homage to Cash, along with other Sun Records luminaries including Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. The cafe is set to also offer Sun Records memorabilia.

Sun Records, which was originally founded in Memphis, Tennessee, is now based in Nashville.
