Revival of an iconic event

Saturday Night in Hickman County

What an absolutely brilliant idea! After Johnny Cash had converted a former general store in his adopted hometown Bon Aqua into a recording studio, including a small stage, he established a music event called “Saturday Night in Hickman County”.

This intimate venue became a stomping ground for singer-songwriters, besides, of course, Johnny and his wife June, bands like The Ewen Brothers Band but also countless unknown country musicians, who performed there. Everybody was welcome, disregarding whether he was an artist performing on stage or just an audience member. Now, Cash’s daughter Cindy continues this tradition. She helped to establish the „Storyteller Museum” (open Thursday-Saturday), where visitors can listen to live performances and look at pictures, artefacts, glass paintings and handwritten scripts of the “Man in Black” as well as admire the maestro’s old,  makeshift, “one piece at a time” Cadillac.
