"ONE PIECE AT A TIME" CAR IMMORALIZED BY JOHNNY CASH ROLLS INTO CMA FAN FEST THIS WEEK
FANS WILL GLIMPSE RARE COUNTRY MUSIC HISTORY WITH ONE-OF-A KIND CADILLAC AS  A STAR OF THE SHOW AT MUSIC CITY CENTER

(NASHVILLE, TN)-- June 8, 2017 --When the doors open today at CMA's exhibit floor display space at the Music City Center in Nashville, fans will encounter a "star" of a different kind ready to greet them!
The "One Piece At A Time" car immoralized in song by Johnny Cash in his #1 hit song of the same name, has its' hubcaps polished and is ready to star as a major attraction this week for fans young and old.
As described in the Cash story song hit, written by Wayne Kemp which reached #1 on the Billlboard Country Singles Chart in 1976, the car is a one-of-a-kind collection of  authentic Cadillac parts assembled--as the song relates-- over a 25 year "steal" from the GM assembly line in Detroit.  Though no two parts match on the finished model--best described as a kissing cousin to a Sedan DeVille and Coupe Deville-- the "OPAAT" car is a "ride" that any country music fan would love.
Now 40 plus years since the original hit made it famous, the results of stardom are still gleaming on the behemoth of a vehicle that Cash featured on video during his concert events and drove multiple times for personal appearance and special events. .The car was built as a gift for the legendary "Man in Black" and housed by him for years as a centerpeice at the original Cash Museum in Hendersonville.
Now a legend in its own right, the car's days on the road are limited to rare personal appearances--such as this week's roll-out for CMA music fans. The much beloved ride has found a permanent new home to park at The Storytellers Museum and  The Hideaway Farm in  Bon Aqua, Tennessee--sites steeped in Cash history that are anticipating a steady stream of country music lovers during the next few days of CMA events.
But this week for the flood of fans who will be fascinated--the "One Piece At A Time" car is resting its' wheels and revving up photo ops on the CMA event floor at Music City Center--booth 280 hosted by its new owners in Bon Aqua.
And yes--it will be dressed in black!.
ABOUT THE STORYTELLERS MUSEUM: : Housed within the newly opened “Storytellers Museum” in Bon Aqua the new home of the historic “Little Stage” was originally the landmark General Store, Equipped later with a recording studio and often used by Johnny Cash as the stage of choice for regular Hickman County  “guitar pulls” that included Cash family members—June, The Carter Family—and friends like Waylon Jennings and Carl Perkins--the site has deep music roots.
