The Johnny Cash Museum Teams with 650 AM-WSM

The Johnny Cash Museum Teams with 650 AM-WSM to Continue the Legacy of The Man In Black
 
Fifty-seven years after Johnny Cash’s first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, The Johnny Cash Museum has solidified an agreement to continue the legacy of the “Man in Black” on the airwaves of 650 AM WSM and wsmonline.com.  Live endorsements for The Johnny Cash Museum, which earned the highest AAA rating as a GEM Attraction, will be heard on Saturday broadcasts of the Opry on WSM beginning August 31st.
 
“We are honored to help introduce our worldwide audience to the amazing Johnny Cash Museum,” says 650 AM WSM General Manager Tom English. “Our listeners will be excited about the museum just as they are about calling and emailing us every day to request their favorite Cash songs.”

"650 WSM and Johnny Cash have a long history together,” says Bill Miller, founder of The Johnny Cash Museum (pictured above with WSM's Eddie Stubbs).  “He was a regular member of the Grand Ole Opry through much of the 60's; he first met June Carter backstage at the Opry years before they would marry, and 650 has never stopped playing Johnny’s records. I'm proud to be part of extending and carrying on the Cash tradition by partnering with this iconic station.”

About The Johnny Cash Museum
The Johnny Cash Museum experience has quickly spread around the globe with outlets like CNN, The NY Times, The NY Post, Billboard, Vogue, Southern Living, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Yahoo, Huffington Post, London’s NME, etc. all buzzing about the attraction. One can never predict who they will see at the museum as Cash family and band members are often inside in addition to celebrities like Ashton Shepherd, Grammy and country music legend Lynn Anderson, The Mavericks, The Oak Ridge Boys, Former VP Al Gore, American Pickers’ Mike Wolfe, etc.  Located at 119 Third Avenue South between Demonbreun and Broadway, the museum is en route between the tourists circulated Broadway strip and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The JCM is open every day from 11 AM to 7 PM CST. General admission is $14 with discounts for students, members of the military, etc.
 
Many never before seen historical documents, letters, awards, costumes and instruments take the visitor on a three dimensional journey through Johnny Cash’s life with interactive technology provided by the Nashville based Griffin Technologies. The museum, designed by the Temeka Group in collaboration with Bill and Shannon Miller, unites the extensive and acclaimed collection of Bill Miller, longtime friend of Cash’s and founder of the official Johnny Cash website www.JohnnyCash.Com, and pieces from friends, colleagues and family members including his daughters, son and siblings. The collection features the earliest known Johnny Cash letters and documents as well as the handwritten manuscript to the last song ever written by the prolific songwriter, just days before his passing. Visitors also are given an extensive look into Cash’s non-entertainment related life including his childhood and early adulthood and his service in the United States Air Force.

Interview with Josey Milner

Interview with Josey Milner


Lamitschka: How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

Josey Milner: This past year has been truly amazing. I've had so many opportunities that I could have only ever dreamed of. Some of the highlights would have to be opening up for Scotty McCreery, playing at fairs and festivals and meeting so many amazing people from all over the U.S. Performing during CMA week down in Nashville was also incredible. It's pretty cool being able to say that I performed in Nashville. :]

Lamitschka: What will your next single be?

Josey Milner: My next single is one completely different than "Not Pretty Enough". It's upbeat and I can really relate to it because of my rodeo background. It's called cowgirls, so as you can see it really ties in with rodeo. It's definitely a dancing song!

Lamitschka: As an artist, you do many tasks such as recording, touring, interviews. What do you like best, what's your favorite activity?

Josey Milner: I like performing the most. It's so exciting and I love the feeling I get knowing that all eyes are on me while I'm on stage. To be able to do what I love and provide entertainment for others makes it that much better.

Lamitschka: What drives you?

Josey Milner: My family, friends and fans who continue to support be throughout this career. If it wasn't for them, I couldn't have a career. Sure you can play out and record songs, but if people don't support you and don't like what you're doing, why else would you?

Lamitschka: What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Josey Milner: What's different about me is for one my age, but also how I truly appreciate country music. I don't just sing it, I live it. Sure I love getting dolled up and performing on stage, but I also don't mind running through a muddy arena on a horse. I can relate to songs which gives me that much more respect for the country music industry.

Lamitschka: What has been your greatest challenge in music business?

Josey Milner: The greatest challenge has been getting people to take a chance on me, considering my age. That's one thing that really kind of freaks people out. I don't know if they think I'm too young and can't get the job done or what, but once I'm given the opportunity, I do what's expected, if not more. I just need chances! :]

Lamitschka: What moments in your career stand out in your memory as highlights and achievements which you are proud of?

Josey Milner: Having my music played internationally is a BIG one. For me being a small town 17 (almost 18) year old, it's pretty crazy to think people were listening to me all over the world. Not only that, but being nominated for an independent country music award was pretty amazing too. Another one was opening up for Soctty McCreery. I've just had so many things that it's hard to narrow it down!

Lamitschka: When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Josey Milner: I like to sit on the couch with a blanket, watch tv or a movie with my family and simply relax. Sometimes I even lay in my room and read a book that I'm really interested in. If I'm not just sitting though, I'll probably be playing with my corgi Opry, or out in the pasture with my horses. If i'm inside, I might be baking a batch of cupcakes or a cake that my dad would request. If it's warm, swimming is always nice. I tend to do a lot of things, just depends on my mood.

Lamitschka: When you're on tour, do you have time to play tourist?

Josey Milner: Sometimes. It just depends on how busy we are. Most of the time, we do though. My favorite time to act like a tourist is when I'm in Nashville, TN for something. I loooove Nashville. The whole atmosphere is awesome and the people there are so sweet! I really enjoy being able to walk down Broadway and see all the neon lights and hearing a different band each time I get to a new door. I really hope I get to stay there one day! :]

Lamitschka: Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do you have your own website and what will fans find there?

Josey Milner: I do! www.joseymilner.com [1] is my website. There, fans can see pictures, my schedule of places I'm going to be, and listen to my music. I also have the link to Angels and Doves which is the anti-bullying organization that I'm associated with. Along with Angels and Doves, I have the links to all my other social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reverbnation, and Instagram. I try as hard as I can to keep up with it all and keep in contact with all my fans! :]

GUY GILCHRIST HONORS STEVE WARINER

GUY GILCHRIST, FAMED ILLUSTRATOR AND WRITER OF "NANCY" COMIC STRIP, HONORS GRAMMY, CMA, AND ACM AWARD WINNER STEVE WARINER AND GRAND OLE OPRY'S 88TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION


NASHVILLE - (August 22, 2013) – GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM Award-winning Opry member Steve Wariner and the Grand Ole Opry will receive a one-of-a-kind recognition for their contributions to Country Music in the Sunday, August 25 edition of the daily comic strip NANCY.

NANCY is syndicated internationally in 80 countries (approximately 400 newspapers), and viewed by 57 million readers around the world. Guy Gilchrist, famed illustrator and writer of NANCY, will sometimes slip his favorite music icons within the frames of his work (most often with their names emblazoned on characters’ tee-shirts or in storefront signage). On rare occasions, Gilchrist will pay tribute to these artists, and make them a centerpiece of the strip. 

Gilchrist will personally present the strip to Wariner and the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, Oct. 6 during a 3:00 pm Wariner concert at the Opry House, as part of the Opry’s Birthday Bash Weekend.

“Over the years, Steve Wariner and I have become good friends. I’ve always admired his work and he mine, so when I heard he had a new album coming out, I wanted to do something for him,” explains Gilchrist. “That’s when I found out he was the featured act during the Opry's 88th Birthday Bash  afternoon concert on Oct. 6 and I knew that I just had to do a full feature strip that focused on him and paid tribute to one of the cornerstones of country music, the Grand Ole Opry.”  

“I think being in the NANCY comic strip is one of the coolest things that has happened in my career,” said Wariner. “I was thrilled to learn that the super talented Guy Gilchrist included me in the strip that honors the 88th birthday of the Grand Ole Opry, which happens to be one of my favorite places to perform.”

Gilchrist, who resides in the Nashville area, has embedded his love for music within the strip, honoring artists such as Elvis, The Beatles, Charlie Daniels, Taylor Swift, Patti Page, George Jones, Don McLean,   and many more. A collection of these music-related strips were donated to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. They are currently on display as part of the larger, ongoing exhibit, “Nancy Loves Nashville,” at the Nashville International Airport  which will run through 2015. For more information on NANCY, please visit www.nancyandsluggo.com.   
 
Country music legend Steve Wariner will release It Ain’t All Bad, his first non-instrumental album in more than eight years, on Sept. 10. The acclaimed singer/songwriter/guitar virtuoso has received four GRAMMY Awards, four CMA Awards, and one ACM Award, among other honors, and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1996. Wariner has achieved 14 No. 1 hits , including “Holes in the Floor of Heaven,” “The Weekend,” “I Got Dreams,” “Lynda,” “Tips of My Fingers,” “Life’s Highway,” “Some Fools Never Learn,” “The Domino Theory,” and more. He is also well known for songs such as “I’m Already Taken,” “Two Teardrops,” “Leave Him Out of This,” “Kansas City Lights,” and more. In addition to writing many of his own songs, Wariner has written hits for other artists including “Longneck Bottle” (Garth Brooks), “Where the Blacktop Ends” (Keith Urban), and “Nothin’ But the Taillights” (Clint Black).

About Guy Gilchrist:

Best known for his work as the writer and illustrator of one of the longest-running internationally syndicated daily comic strips, NANCY (a character created by Ernie Bushmiller in 1933), Guy Gilchrist took over the strip in 1995. After high school, Guy was already working in NYC for Disney and others, as well as full time for Weekly Reader Books. At the age of 24, he was hand-selected to create Jim Henson’s Muppets Comic Strip (which was wildly successful and printed worldwide in over 660 newspapers daily from 1981–1986). Throughout the years, Guy has set his hand to such notable cartoons as Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Fraggle Rock and The Pink Panther (to name a few), and was the instrumental in the creation of The Muppet Babies. Guy is the two-time winner of the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Category Award for Best Illustrator and a three-time recipient of the International Reading Committee of United Nations Children’s Choice Awards for Best Book of the Year

Gilchrist’s work is currently on exhibit at the Nashville International Airport, museums around the world, the Walt Disney Museum in Marceline, Mo., as well as permanently enshrined in the Smithsonian Institution.  For more information on NANCY or Guy Gilchrist, please visit www.nancyandsluggo.com
