The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum launched a new Web site today at www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
The redesigned site features tons more video, particularly of the Museum’s special programming such as the Poets & Prophets series, Nashville Cats, and events tied to the Williams Family exhibition. There are also more photos, facts, and information.
Tina Wright, the Hall’s director of media relations, says the new site is like a virtual trip to the Museum. She explains that developers wanted to use the site to make the institution, its events, and exhibits accessible to those who couldn’t attend in person.
The domain change from .com to .org emphasizes the organization’s focus on being a not-for-profit educational entity. Accordingly, staff e-mails have changed and they can now be reached at [email protected].
Among the upcoming events at the Hall:
Sat., Nov. 14—Songwriter Session with Marshall Chapman at 11:30 a.m. Followed by an Interview and Performance with Norbert Putnam as part of Nashville Cats: A Celebration of Music City Musicians at 1:30 p.m.
Tues., Nov. 17—Louise Scruggs Memorial Forum Interview with Mary Martin at 6:00 p.m. (free)
