COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM will officially reveal the final phase of its expansion on TUESDAY, APRIL 15th at 1:15p (CT) with the opening of an additional 10,000 square feet of new exhibit space.
The grand opening celebration will take place on an outdoor stage at the corner of DEMONBREUN and 5th AVENUE SOUTH in NASHVILLE. The event will be open to the public and feature performances by VINCE GILL, RICKY SKAGGS, LEE ANN WOMACK, BUDDY MILLER and more, along with appearances by NASHVILLE MAYOR KARL DEAN and other special guests.
The debuting exhibits include the "ACM GALLERY" and "FRED AND DINA GRETSCH FAMILY GALLERY," featuring an interactive, hands-on immersion in the Country music of today, and the "DESIGN GALLERY: A WINDOW INTO THE COLLECTION," which allows a behind-the-scenes view of museum staff hard at work on actual archival projects.
"This expansion is a major milestone for the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM," said Museum Dir. KYLE YOUNG. "It also embodies the exciting momentum shaping NASHVILLE today, especially downtown. All of us at the MUSEUM are so proud to help lead the current growth that is defining one of the country's most culturally significant regions."
