Johnny Cash Museum Nashville Honors Our Military

The Johnny Cash Museum is proud to honor Senior Intelligence Sergeant for the First Brigade Combat Team (1BCT) Fort Campbell, KY Christopher Davis by hosting his Army re-enlistment ceremony on Friday, March 16 at 8:30 AM CT.

Christopher Davis enlisted in the armed services in December 2007 and completed basic training in January 2008 in South Carolina. Throughout his active duty, he has been stationed in Arizona, Germany, South Korea, Tennessee, Turkey and Washington. The Clinton, MS native will be joined by his close family and friends at the ceremony located in the Johnny Cash Museum’s Patriotic Exhibition, “The Ragged Old Flag Room.”

“I’m honored to re-enlist at the Johnny Cash Museum,” says Christopher. “Johnny Cash was a pioneer. He persevered through a lot of hard times but set a goal to become a musician and became a damn good one at that. He also had a very rogue, non-traditional approach to getting things done.”

JR Cash enlisted in the United States Air Force on July 7, 1950. The enlistment was the reason his name was changed to the one we know today: when he enlisted, he had to have a first name rather than initials. It was at this time that he chose the name John. Cash completed basic training in San Antonio and was deployed to Germany.

The Johnny Cash Museum most recently welcomed its one millionth visitor in December of 2017. This is a must see when visiting Nashville, you will not be disappointed in all that it has to showcase. To get more information go to
