NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Drawing a capacity audience at downtown Nashville’s Johnny Cash Museum Café, “Cindy Morgan & Friends” recently brought together some of music’s most talented writers for an evening of stories and songs.
Hosted by Leilah Hayman, daughter of Woodstock and pop/folk legend Melanie Safka, the event featured GRAMMY® nominated, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan, along with Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Tom Douglas; Tony Award-nominated and GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winner Wayne Kirkpatrick; lauded singer/songwriter and author Andrew Peterson; and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Jonathan Kingham (Toad the Wet Sprocket).
A two-time GRAMMY® nominee, Cindy Morgan has garnered 13 Dove Awards, 21 #1 hits and has penned songs for such artists as Amy Grant, India.Arie, Rascal Flatts, and Michael W. Smith, among many others. Her latest recording, the critically acclaimed Bows & Arrows, released earlier this fall, while her recent book, How Could I Ask For More: Stories of Blessings, Battles and Beauty (Worthy Publishing), bowed in August.
Named the “#1 Must Visit Museum for Music Lovers” by Condé Nast Traveler, The Johnny Cash Museum most recently teamed with Nashville’s oldest and most-honored coffee company, Bongo Java, to perk up downtown Nashville with the addition of a coffee shop and café to the museum. The Johnny Cash Museum is open every day from 9 AM to 7 PM. General admission is $16 with discounts for AAA, military, senior citizen and youth (6-15).
