Nashville will be getting an extra helping of Johnny Cash this spring, without a side of Merle Haggard.

Icon Entertainment announced it will open Johnny Cash’s Kitchen and Saloon in downtown Nashville in the coming months. The two-story, 15,000-square-foot venue will feature traditional Southern meat-and-three fare, including fried chicken, barbecue and more. Stages and bars will be located on both floors.

Icon Entertainment, the group behind the Johnny Cash Museum and Patsy Cline Museum, announced plans for the Merle Haggard Museum and Merle’s Meat + 3 Saloon in October 2017, but the plans fell through and the new Johnny Cash restaurant will fill the space at 121 Third Ave. South, next to the Johnny Cash Museum.

The restaurant will be operated by the Swett family, which has run Swett’s Restaurant in Nashville for more than 60 years.
