THE JOHNNY CASH MUSEUM PREPARES TO SHINE LIGHT ON SUN RECORDS ARTISTS
*The Legends of Sun Records Exhibit Opens to Public on August 15th*
It’s the dawn of a new exhibition at The Johnny Cash Museum with the unveiling of The Legends of Sun Records collection on August 15th. This exhibit marks the first addition to the world renowned Johnny Cash Museum and is sure to be the first of many for the JCM. The Legends of Sun Records exhibit will feature artifacts that spotlight Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and drummer W.S. Holland.
“Johnny Cash began his musical career at Sun Records,” says Founder Bill Miller. “Sun was the launch pad for several young men whose music would forever impact the world. Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and Johnny came from similar backgrounds and humble beginnings. Once they walked through the door at the Memphis Recording Service, their lives would never be the same. We are proud to showcase Johnny’s labelmates from this historic period in rock and roll history.”
The founders of the museum aren’t the only ones both excited and honored to be a part of the exhibit.
