On Oct. 30, Merle Haggard’s family and Icon Entertainment announced the opening of the Merle Haggard Museum in Nashville.

The museum is set to open next summer and will feature “performance wardrobes, instruments, professional and personal possessions and interactive exhibits,” according to Nash Country Daily. The restaurant, Merle’s Meat + 3 Saloon, will also be housed in the same building.

Theresa Haggard, Merle’s widow said:

“Merle would be very happy knowing that his museum will be next door to his dear friend, Johnny Cash. I’m sure he is up there smiling about that. Our family is also very excited about the Merle-themed restaurant and bar featuring first-class Southern home cooking and a saloon to boot. This museum will be a way to preserve and share the love Merle had for music and life.”
