Johnny Cash fans can get an up-close-and-personal look at the artists private farmhouse residence in Bon Aqua, Tennessee.
The Story Tellers Museum is in a general store that the great Red Wortham converted into a recording studio, and that Johnny Cash used as a place for local concerts. Visitors can see the historic “Little Stage” where the “Saturday Night in Hickman County” guitar pulls once took place. Johnny’s daughter, Cindy Cash, helped curators create the experience.
Inside the museum are handwritten letters and song lyrics (including the words to “Saturday Night in Hickman County,” inspired by Cash’s time in Bon Aqua), Cash memorabilia, a leaf from a rare Gutenberg Bible, which was printed in the 1450s, and the “One Piece at a Time” car, inspired by the story-song Cash recorded 40 years ago.
The Cash Hideaway Farm at Bon Aqua belonged to Johnny Cash for over thirty years. Visitors can see the place he called “the center of my universe.”
