Johnny Cash Museum, Nashville, Tennessee
A Museum in Black
I wasn’t able to get out much due to work and the rain, but when Saturday morning came around, there was ONE thing I wanted to do, and that was the Johnny Cash museum!
I’ll confess, I am not a Johnny Cash connoisseur. I get on Johnny kicks now and again, but it doesn’t go beyond his greatest hits and a handful of lesser-known songs. However, as far as country music goes, he tops my very short list of what I listen to.
That said, I appreciate and really dig his contribution to music, his attitude, his image, his voice and his story telling.
A $100 visit
We didn’t have a discount, so after tickets and some limited merchandise, we paid a good $100 for the family. Did we like Johnny that much?
Plus, it was just a lower level of a small two story building. Was there going to be enough to look at?
In fact, if we didn’t have a restless toddler, we could have spent hours there and seen just a few things. Not only were there letters he wrote, albums, awards, clothing, movies, memorabilia, etc, but there were interactive sections where you could listen to his songs on different media through history, mix his songs and listen to numerous remakes of his work. There was even a blown up image of his driver’s license. It was awesome!
