Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley

On Thursday the 7th of August we took a road trip to Robinsonville, MS to stay at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino. On our trip we decided we would go to Graceland and head up to Nashville to visit family and go to the Johnny Cash Museum. Since we were going to Graceland, we figured we might as well check out Graceland Too and Elvis’ birthplace. It was random that it ended up also being Elvis Presley Week.

Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino I would not recommend. The walls were paper thin, we didn’t get our room cleaned one of the days, we were left with towels with holes in them and the food at the buffet wasn’t that good either. We would probably stay at the Horseshoe the next time. We tried their buffet and it was much better. The staff at Sam’s Town was very nice and friendly.

We went out to the River Bend Links Golf Course the first morning we were there. It was a nice course.

Today would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th Birthday. Cash was a versatile, talented musician. Today in Dyess, AR they are having a tribute in Cash’s honor by opening his boyhood home to the public. Arkansas State University funded the restoration project and will be hosting a viewing today, while his family will be having a Johnny Cash Tribute Fest. Also, in Nashville, TN the Johnny Cash 18,000 sq ft. museum is underway to open this summer.

“You can ask the people around me. I don’t give up. I don’t give up… and it’s not out of frustration and desperation that I say I don’t give up. I don’t give up because I don’t give up. I don’t believe in it” ~Johnny Cash
