A museum dedicated to the incredible life and influential music of Patsy Cline will soon open its doors in downtown Nashville.
Construction on the Patsy Cline Museum, which will be located directly above the popular Johnny Cash Museum on Third Ave., is set to begin this June. The founder of Cash’s museum, Bill Miller, will also fully fund and operate the establishment.
According to a press release, the exhibits will feature “interactive cutting-edge audio and touch screen video technology.” Cline’s family has also donated many never-before-seen pieces from their personal archive, including costumes, photographs, hand-written letters and awards.
“I am very happy to speak on behalf of my brothers, Randy and Chip and in honor of the legacy of my mother Patsy Cline,” Julie Fudge, Patsy Cline’s daughter, said in a statement. “Since the passing of our father last fall, this is our first step together in continuing to share Mom’s music, life and story, as we feel Dad would have. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with and experience what Bill will present to old and new fans alike.”
An official opening date for the Patsy Cline Museum has not yet been announced. Currently, the only operating museum dedicated to the late country legend is located inside her childhood home in Winchester, Virginia.
