The JOHNNY CASH MUSEUM (JCM) will unveil its newest exhibit "THE LEGENDS OF SUN RECORDS" collection, on FRIDAY, AUGUST 15th. The exhibit is the first addition since the opening of the JCM and will feature artifacts spotlighting the careers of JOHNNY CASH, ELVIS PRESLEY, ROY ORBISON, JERRY LEE LEWIS, CARL PERKINS, and drummer W.S. HOLLAND.
"JOHNNY CASH began his musical career at SUN RECORDS," said JCM Founder BILL MILLER. "SUN was the launch pad for several young men whose music would forever impact the world. ELVIS PRESLEY, CARL PERKINS, JERRY LEE LEWIS and JOHNNY came from similar backgrounds and humble beginnings. Once they walked through the door at the MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE, their lives would never be the same. We are proud to showcase JOHNNY's label mates from this historic period in Rock and Roll history."
