Located a short drive west of Nashville on I-40, this was the place Johnny Cash used to escape from public life. Now the Storytellers Hideaway Farm and Museum in Bon Aqua, TN is a must-stop for anyone interested in knowing more about the man behind the country music icon, as well as the region’s rich history.Plan to see Storytellers Hideaway Farm and Museum and other attractions that appeal to you using our Bon Aqua trip itinerary website.
Visitors will tour the hideaway home - built before the Civil War by the prominent Weems family - that Johnny Cash called the center of his universe for over 30 years, and will learn so much more about the man behind the legend. Mini concerts happen throughout the day, with our talented in-house musicians. Afterward, visitors will be able to tour the Farm itself, seeing things such as Johnny’s own vineyard, the barn, and the car shed, where we house several vehicles including the famous One Piece At A Time Cadillac.
We recommend allowing at least one-and-a-half hours for the visit. Visits are self-guided and untimed, and visitors are welcome to savor the peaceful and serene 8-acre field.

If anyone plans to visit Nashville TN, this destination HAS to be on your to see list. The museum has many hands on things to see and interact with. Johnny Cash’s family entertain at different times and are some of the best entertainers I’ve ever met ... and personable!!! The owners, the Oxley’s, are by far some of the kindest, most amazing people I’ve been met. They both have a love in them that just flows; and they glow outwardly because of it. I’m in awe of them!!! This will be one of the most memorable places you have ever visited!!! You will make friends and memories that will last a lifetime!
THE BEST EXPERIENCE! My husband and I brought our 17 yr old daughter and 20 yr old son to the Storyteller’s Farm (our son is a MASSIVE Johnny Cash fan). In short, we came away completely impressed by the property, the memorabilia, and the stories! It truly feels like you’re stepping into grandma and grandpa’s house - authentic, unpretentious, super cozy, but oozing with the spirit of Johnny, June, and their families! It actually feels like you’re just waiting for them to show up from being out of town - it’s nearly indescribable! The owners of the property were out of town, but their friends, Patsy and Rodney, welcomed us in their stead and were incredibly hospitable! I’m telling you, it felt like we were visiting old friends - they were so warm, welcoming, and kind! We were given a generous tour with ample time in the home, the garage, and on the property! My favorite experience was our time with Mark (Mark Alan Cash is Johnny’s nephew). He spoiled us with family stories, personal reflections, and a private concert that not only honored his uncle, but also showcased his own music (my personal request)! Our family was incredibly touched by his transparency, sincere love of family, and approachable demeanor. I can’t say enough good things about him, but I highly recommend buying his CD/t-shirt and paying for ticket if he’s ever singin’ in your town! I wish more people knew about this little slice of heaven Johnny called, “the center of my universe!” It is a gorgeous piece of property with magical landscapes that could mesmerize the most cynical person. No matter how you feel about country music or Johnny Cash, you’ll walk away from this experience humbled and grateful - we sure did!
