Country Hall Of Fame Gets Modern
May 11, 2010 at 7:15 AM (PT)
Curators at the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM in downtown NASHVILLE are nearing completion on additions to the Museum’s permanent exhibition, “Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music.”
The most recent updates focus on contemporary artists including JAMEY JOHNSON, TAYLOR SWIFT, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, BRAD PAISLEY and KEITH URBAN. These changes, which are intended to bring the story of Country music forward in time, will be completed on MAY 14th.
Some of the items include BRAD PAISLEY’s trademark cowboy hat, his first electric guitar, TAYLOR SWIFT’s strapless Reem Acra gown, which features a gold-sequined bodice and softly flared tulle skirt, and CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s sophisticated two-piece black cocktail gown featuring a spaghetti-strapped bottom layer topped with a delicate, lace- and bead-trimmed sheer tunic.
The Museum will celebrate the completion of these updates with several special programs on MAY 14th and 15th, including a curators’ talk on MAY 14th, and an interview with artist NAOMI JUDD and record executive (SONY MUSIC Chairman), JOE GALANTE, on MAY 15th at 1:30p (CT) in the rotunda. All programs are included with Museum admission and free to Museum members.
