The owner of the project hopes to have the Nashville museum finished by the end of this year.

Bill Miller, the man behind the museum project, has been a longtime Johnny Cash memorabilia collector and currently owns and operates a Cash website.

Rosanne Cash, Johnny’s daughter, said about Miller:

“He’s been an incredible supporter of my dad and one of the largest collectors of memorabilia. If anybody has the whole structure to put up a museum, he does. So I have a lot of trust in him and I think it’s great at this point. I think he’ll do something with dignity and class that’s historically important, not some kitschy thing. I’m very interested in seeing what he does.”

The museum will be located in Nashville’s Lower Broadway district, a very tourist-friendly section of the city.

In addition to the museum, Johnny Cash’s childhood home in Dyess, Arkansas is in the process of being turned into a tourist attraction by restoring its original 1930s appearance.

Johnny Cash, who died of complications from diabetes in 2003, would have turned 80 this month.
