EVENT INFORMATION: The new exhibit space will showcase many unique interactive features, memorabilia, costumes and more. Throughout the new wing, fans have the opportunity to interact with the man in black through his music. One of the many highlights of the exhibit is a technology-driven area that provides attendees the opportunity to mix their own versions of Cash’s songs. Additionally, costumes, props and other artifacts from the Golden Globe and Academy award-winning movie, Walk The Line, will also be on display. Scheduled highlights of the Birthday Bash are meet n’ greets, q&a’s with special guests, intimate guest performances, trivia contests, and more. A fan favorite of the annual event is the Fan Jam, which puts the spotlight on attendees. Fans can bring their own instruments and have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform some of Cash’s greatest hits with Cash’s one and only drummer, W.S. Holland. On Saturday, Feb. 27 only, the legendary “One Piece at a Time” car, made famous by Cash’s song of the same name that peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top 100 Country Singles chart in 1976, will be on display in Nashville for the first time in decades. Fans can photograph and be photographed in the car. The Cadillac was built using parts manufactured from 1949 to 1973. Feb. 26, 2016 marks what would have been the man in black’s 84th birthday.
