Hall of Fame Extends Williams Family Exhibition

wmsThe Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s critically acclaimed exhibition Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy, Co-Presented by SunTrust and Ford Motor Company, which was originally scheduled to close on December 31, 2009, has been extended through December 31, 2011. The Museum will expand the exploration of the Williams family’s legacy with the addition of new artifacts on loan from the family and other sources. Installation will be complete in March 2010.

CMHOFAccording to Director Kyle Young, Family Tradition has been the most popular and critically acclaimed exhibit in the Museum’s history. “This is due not only to the family’s iconic stature and its influence on generations of artists,” he said, “but also because of the participation of the members of the Williams family, each of whom has generously loaned us heirlooms and artifacts, and helped to tell the truest and most complete story about their family to date.”

The museum is also preparing to unveil additions and revisions to its core exhibition, Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music, in May 2010. It will be expanded, updated, and reinvigorated with new exhibits, new themes, new content, a new look, and more video and audio.
