Street signs inside the museum. Roger "King of the Road" Miller Museum

This unique little museum is a tribute to Erick's favorite son, the late, great Roger Miller. The Museum is dedicated exclusively to Roger Miller and does not include Erick's other celebrity (and Miller's brother-in-law), Sheb Wooley. Displays include Roger's old Honda Motorcycle, lots of photographs and musical instruments and outfits belonging to the celebrated "King Of The Road"!

Portrait of Roger Miller at the museum. Roger "King of the Road" Miller Museum

After catching the new billboard, I'd love to give you an in-depth report on the Roger Miller Museum but I had the bad sense to visit on one of the TWO days the Museum is closed (Monday and Tuesday). Still, from glimpsing in the window and a dog-eared brochure, the place is worthy of a return visit. If only because nobody in Nashville would dare write such non-p.c. fare today. Who doesn't want to commemorate that paean to schooltime drinking with a "Chug-A-Lug" shotglass? Who knew that Sheb "Purple People Eater" Wooley was his brother-in-law? How would I ever learn that "Dang Me" was written in four minutes in a Phoenix hotel room? And would I even have guessed that his tearjerking ballad "When Two Worlds Collide" was inspired by Roger's favorite movie, the George Pal sci-fi epic of almost the same name? And who can forget his hobo classic, "King Of The Road"? (you haven't lived until you've seen it performed by Wall Drug's "Chuck Wagon Four").
