The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona is proud to announce the addition of a new exhibit featuring instruments and stage wear from the infamous Johnny Cash and Carter family. These new exhibits join the ranks of other prominent artists with ties to country music already featured in MIM’s Artist Gallery including Elvis Presley, Toby Keith, Roy Orbison, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Taylor Swift.
Items on display in the Carter Family and Johnny Cash exhibits have never before been displayed for the public and come to MIM on loan from John Carter Cash, son of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and Dale Jett, grandson of A.P. Carter. The items will be on display through April 2016.
“When I first visited MIM, I was excited by its inimitable beauty and scale. It has been a wondrous blessing to work with the staff there and help bring about the Carter Family / Johnny Cash display,” said John Carter Cash. “I feel it is inspired and shows a unique view into the history of country music that cannot be seen anywhere else.”
