A museum dedicated to late country music legend Patsy Cline is set to open in Tennessee.
The owner of the Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville is planning to develop a venue featuring the Walking After Midnight singer's personal possessions, costumes, awards, letters, furniture and photographs right above Cash's exhibit. The space will also have interactive audio, touch screen video technology and a gift shop.
"Of all the artists in the history of country music, few are as recognised and as recognisable as Patsy Cline," Cash Museum owner Bill Miller says. "Despite the fact that she passed decades ago, her impact and presence are every bit as big today as ever. Her fans from around the globe will have a place to come and celebrate her life and legacy."
"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," reads a statement from Cline's daughter, Julie Fudge. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with and experience what Bill will present to old and new fans alike."
Construction on the museum is scheduled to begin in June (16).
Patsy passed away in a plane crash in 1963, aged 30.
