Johnny Cash Museum owner, Merle Haggard’s family partner in Nashville venture

Last fall, Bill Miller paid just over $7 million for the building at 121 Third Ave. S. that houses Mr. Hat’s Boot Co.

On Monday Bill Miller will be joined by the family of the Bakersfield Sound pioneer, who died last year, for a special announcement above the Cash Museum at 119 Third Ave. S.

Since opening the Cash Museum in 2013, Miller has added Nudie’s Honky Tonk at 409 Broadway in honor of deceased country music tailor Nudie Cohn. And last year, he opened the Patsy Cline Museum in space directly above the Cash Museum.

That includes the historic Southern Turf Building at 222 Fourth Ave. N., whose basement houses Skull's Rainbow Room. Before buying that National Register-building for $6 million, Miller purchased a majority stake in the Skull's bar and lounge that’s known for its burlesque shows.
