The COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM has announced the new exhibition, “TAYLOR SWIFT: SPEAK NOW --TREASURES FROM THE WORLD TOUR,” will open at the museum on JUNE 6th and run through NOVEMBER 4th, 2012. The exhibition will include dozens of costumes, instruments, set pieces and props from the six-time GRAMMY winner’s acclaimed 2011-12 Speak Now World Tour, which entertained more than 1.5 million fans over 111 shows in 19 countries spanning four continents.
“TAYLOR SWIFT’s Speak Now tour was one of the most successful tours in all of music, and she has been an ambassador for Country music, raising awareness of our genre literally around the globe,” said Museum Dir. KYLE YOUNG. “We are delighted to be able to bring our visitors up close and personal with many of their favorite elements from the show, from the colorful and elaborate stage costumes and beautiful instruments, to the magnificent ‘JULIET balcony’ that TAYLOR entered near the conclusion of each show and ‘flew’ around the circumference of each venue.”
Earlier this month, the BIG MACHINE RECORDS artist, SWIFT, pledged $4 million to fund a new education center at the museum. SWIFTS gift, the largest capital contribution by an individual artist in the museum’s 45-year history, prompted the museum to name the new space the TAYLOR SWIFT EDUCATION CENTER. The center will open in early 2014.
