Country Hall Of Fame To Open Tammy Wynette Exhibit
April 9, 2010 at 2:37 PM (PT)
COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME and MUSEUM/NASHVILLE will pay tribute to the great TAMMY WYNETTE with the exhibition TAMMY WYNETTE: First Lady of Country Music, Presented by GAC-TV. The exhibition opens in the Museum’s East Gallery on AUGUST 20th, 2010, and runs through JUNE, 2011.
“TAMMY was a true steel magnolia, a daughter of the South whose ladylike appearance and slight physical stature belied the magnitude of her grit, determination and talent,” said Museum Director KYLE YOUNG. “Throughout her career, her personal and professional lives were indistinguishably interwoven, resulting in achingly honest recordings and performances to which fans could relate. She helped redefine what it means to be a female country singer. Her death at age 55 came far too soon, but TAMMY left behind a musical canon that is among the strongest and most influential in AMERICAN music history.”
TAMMY WYNETTE died on APRIL 6th, 1998. She was elected to the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME later that year.
