Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe, Nashville (must see)

You don't have to be a fan of country music to admire and appreciate the life and legacy of entertainer Johnny Cash, one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. His biography, from the early years and Air Force days to the later stages of a brilliant music career is chronicled in this museum in the busy South of Broadway neighborhood.

Here's where you'll find the largest collection of JC memorabilia and personal effects anywhere, including stage costumes, handwritten letters and notes, handwritten lyrics, Gold and Platinum records, Grammy and CMA awards, personal belongings, JC's personal Bible, memorabilia from his days with the Highwaymen, the Cash family piano, even JC's birth certificate and a stone wall taken from his lake house in Hendersonville, TN. Two recent additions are Cash's first gold record, "I Walk The Line" (which is now certified Double-Platinum), and "The Man In Black" exhibit which focuses on Cash's all-black look. Other sections of the museum are devoted to Sun Records, the Memphis label that helped launch Cash's career, along with the careers of Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis; an exhibit on Cash's TV and movie career; and the Patsy Cline Museum, which is located on the 2nd floor.
