Icon Entertainment Group Founder Bill Miller was joined by members of both the Cash and Carter families, including John Carter Cash, Tommy Cash, Joanne Cash and Carlene Carter, on Wednesday morning (July 31) for the grand opening of Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon in downtown Nashville.
The restaurant is located at 121 Third Ave. S., and features food from longtime Nashville institution Swett’s, which has been in operation since 1954.
“We are thrilled and honored to introduce Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon to the world,” says Icon Entertainment Group Founder Bill Miller. “It’s one of the most unique venues anywhere, anchored by one of the biggest and most beloved personalities in the history of entertainment. Johnny’s legions of fans from around the world will be immersed in the hospitality and ambience they’d find if they had been to Johnny and June’s home for dinner.”
“I am thrilled about the new restaurant, Johnny Cash‘s Kitchen & Saloon,” says John Carter Cash. “Dad‘s favorite foods in the world are exactly what you will find on the menu. I remember my father and mother bringing me to Swett’s when I was but a small boy. Southern cooking was my father’s very life blood and tradition, and I firmly believe it does not get any better than this.”
“It has been a pleasure working with Bill and his team to train the staff at Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon,” says Swett’s owner David Swett. “We have enjoyed helping to put this restaurant together and know it will be a success for downtown Nashville.”
Icon Entertainment Group owns and operates the Johnny Cash Museum, Patsy Cline Museum, Nudie’s Honky Tonk, Music City Threads, House of Cards and Skull’s Rainbow Room in Nashville, Tenn. Coming in 2020 is the Sinatra Bar and Lounge to the Southern Turf building.
