Formerly located in Hendersonville, TN, the Johnny Cash Museum was at this location for many years. While Johnny Cash was alive, it housed many pieces of memorabilia from the performer's life. Cash's own mother, Carrie, worked at the museum for the last ten years of her life.

The museum is featured in the Johnny Cash video "Hurt", a Nine Inch Nails cover that was directed by Mark Romanek. The museum is shown after it had been closed and damaged by a flood- a striking visual metaphor for the dark, introspective lyrics to the song.

The Johnny Cash Museum has since been moved to Nashville, with a scheduled opening in the summer of 2012. The current land and buildings were sold by the Cash family to Hendersonville developer Danny Hale in 2007 for $600,000.
