I grew up listening to Johnny Cash songs.
My dad had been a teenager during the legendary ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ days of Sun Records. Before I ever heard Johnny Cash sing, I knew “Folsom Prison Blues” and “I Walk the Line” from the versions my dad would strum out on his battered Epiphone acoustic guitar.
Over time I came to learn Cash’s better known versions of those classics – and that singular voice that was somehow as comfortable delivering heartfelt gospel numbers as it was renegade outlaw songs, or the playful duets he would perform with his bride June. Somewhere along the line I realized that the songs I learned as coming from my dad’s boyhood hero were in truth the songs of a legend.
So you can imagine how excited I was to hear from the backers of the soon-to-open Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville. (Read the whole story in the Tennessean). We’ll be working with two other Nashville-based companies – Encore Interpretive Design and Docent Interactive – to develop the interactive displays and content for the museum’s exhibits.
It’s exactly the sort of setting we had in mind when we were in the design stages of our Kiosk for iPad. And while we suspected it would be an awesome product and the perfect solution for settings like museums, it’s always nice to have those suspicions confirmed.
We’re looking forward to this and will share pictures as soon as we can.
