Mark your calendars because in the late spring of 2019, a new 15,000 square-foot kitchen and bar will open with Johnny Cash‘s name on it! The Johnny Cash’s Kitchen and Saloon will be right next to the Johnny Cash Museum.
The superstar couple got married just three years after meeting each other at the Grand Ole Opry way back in 1956. And, their kitchen was a staple as well as a famed place for gathering visitors and families. Both Johnny and June were famous for their authenticity and hospitality with their guests. And, the new restaurant and bar aim to deliver the same kind of feel.
The second floor is set to be designed just like the Carter-Cash home. It will be adorned with a large stone fireplace and leather sofas. Stages and bars will be both on the first and the second floor.
The Tribute Restaurant
This bar and restaurant is the child of a partnership between the John R. Cash Trust and Icon Entertainment. Cathy Sullivan, a representative of The John R. Cash Trust has some warm words for both the alliance with Icon Entertainment as well as another tribute for the man in black.
“On behalf of the Cash family and estate, I am honored and excited to have this additional alliance with Bill Miller. Johnny Cash is still a vibrant force in the Nashville community and beyond. It is a fitting tribute.”
Icon Entertainment is known for owning the Johnny Cash Museum, House of Cards, the Patsy Cline Museum, and Nudie’s Honky Tonk. CEO of Icon Entertainment could not keep the enthusiasm from his speech when he talked about the joint venture.
“I’m beyond thrilled to expand our extremely successful relationship with the Cash Estate through this ground-breaking food and beverage concept. My relationship with the Cash family extends to nearly my entire life, and there’s no greater pleasure for me and my family than continuing our partnership well into the future. The impression Johnny Cash left on Nashville is indelible and this venture further confirms that his presence will be a dominant force here for many years to come.”
