July 1, 2011 at 7:46 AM (PT)
CONNIE SMITH has been selected as the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM’s “Artist-in-Residence,” in NASHVILLE. She will serve as host and curator at the FORD THEATER and perform an intimate set on AUGUST 22nd, AUGUST 29th, and SEPTEMBER 12th at 7p (CT).
“CONNIE SMITH possesses one of the most powerful and recognizable voices in country music,” said Museum Director, KYLE YOUNG. “Her body of work includes more than 50 albums, and her signature song, ‘Once a Day,’ remains one of country music’s most popular classics. When CONNIE sings, she takes us on an emotional journey, wringing every teardrop and ounce of feeling from her lyrics. We are thrilled that she will be bringing those talents to the FORD THEATER for three one-of-a-kind shows.”
Tickets for the special go on sale to the general public at 10a (CT) on FRIDAY, AUGUST 5th, and can be purchased at www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
