Country legend Johnny Cash's brother has given his thumbs up to a new museum featuring artefacts and memorabilia from the Walk The Line singer's life, insisting it was an "awesome experience" to walk around the place. The Johnny Cash Museum, which opened for business in Nashville, Tennessee last month (Apr13), is the culmination of months of hard work for founder Bill Miller and his staff, and Cash's younger brother Tommy is among those who have paid the treasure trove of country music memories a visit. He tells Billboard.com, "It's indescribable. There's so much to comprehend. I knew all of the memorabilia was somewhere, but to see it all in one building is an awesome experience. I could spend a week in here and probably not see every single thing. It's something that people that come to Nashville from all over the world will want to see." The items on display include the late country star's grade school report card and the ring given to him in the last year of his life. Cash died in Nashville a decade ago (03), aged 71.
