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.

The new Patsy Cline museum will showcase the largest collection of rare Patsy Cline artifacts, including many of the "Walking After Midnight" singer's personal possessions, costumes, awards, letters, furniture and photographs.

The exhibits will feature interactive cutting-edge audio and touch screen video technology, along with a dedicated gift shop.

Cline’s 1960's music broke industry barriers as the first female to successfully record and chart “crossover” pop hits. 30 year-old Cline died in a 1963 plane crash.
