The Johnny Cash Museum Waves in a Ragged Old Flag Fourth Special for Military Patrons
Freedom sings this Independence Day as The Johnny Cash Museum (JCM) celebrates Military guests with free music. The first 200 patrons who present their military ID when they purchase admission to the museum on the holiday will receive a complimentary CD in honor of their bravery and service.
“Johnny himself served in the Air Force and always extended a helping hand to our service men and women and the organizations that support them,” says Founder Bill Miller. “In a small way, we are hoping to continue that outreach.”
Johnny’s love of country is on permanent display at the JCM in the “Ragged Old Flag” room. Guests will find both hand written lyrics and hear Johnny’s booming voice reciting the work in a video that is project on Old Glory. Also, located at the rear of the room on temporary loan from The Nixon Library is the ball gown worn by First lady Patricia Nixon during the Command for Cash’s performance.
The grand opening of the JCM has certainly proved to be the most talked about latest attraction for Music City as seen recently on CNN, The New York Times, The New York Post, Vogue, Billboard, CMT, Southern Living, Huffington Post and Guitar World.
“I’ve seen a lot of museums around the world,” says former Vice President Al Gore. “This is first class and you will see, you can mark my words, this will become one of the major tourist attractions for Nashville.”
The JCM is conveniently located just off Broadway at 119 Third Avenue South in downtown Nashville. The museum is open every day from 11am to 7pm CST. General admission is $14 with discounts for students, members of the military, etc. For more information regarding the Johnny Cash museum and other events, please visit www.johnnycash.com or www.johnnycashmuseum.com.
