Museum also opening new interactive attractions, exhibiting “One Piece at a Time” Cadillac.
The folks at Nashville’s Johnny Cash Museum will host their annual “Johnny Cash Birthday Bash” this weekend, celebrating what would have been the Man of Black’s 84th birthday a slew of special guests.
But wait — there’s more.
The museum also will host the grand opening of its new wing, which will showcase several unique interactive features, memorabilia, costumes, and more. One of the many highlights of the exhibit is a technology-driven area that will give fans the opportunity to mix their own versions of Cash’s songs. Additionally, costumes, props and other artifacts from Walk the Line — the award-winning 2005 film featuring Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash — will be on display.
And on Saturday, February 27, only: The legendary “One Piece at a Time” Cadillac (pictured above), made famous by Cash’s chart-topping 1976 song of the same name, will be on display in Nashville for the first time in decades. Fans can photograph (and be photographed inside) the car, which was built using parts manufactured from 1949 to 1973.
