Hall of Fame Exhibit Spotlights Red Dresses

The dress worn by JaneDear girl Danelle Leverett (R) on the duo's album cover will be featured in the HoF's new exhibit.

A new spotlight exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will feature red dresses from artists including Sara Evans, Naomi Judd and Lorrie Morgan. Titled Something in Red, the exhibit opens Feb. 3 (National Wear Red Day) and runs through April in support of the American Heart Association and Go Red For Women.

Each red dress appears courtesy of the artists’ personal collection and collectively serve as a symbol for the fight against heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women.

Among the dresses featured:

  • Sara Evans’ full-length velvet sheath designed by Victor Costa, worn at the 1999 ACM Awards
  • Naomi Judd’s leather-like jacket and skirt designed by Esben and Vanessa Ware and the Judds, worn at the 1987 CMA Awards
  • The JaneDear girls’ Danelle Leverett’s strapless Daisy mini-dress, worn on the cover of the duo’s self-titled debut album; and Susie Brown’s cocktail dress, designed by Ryan Gamboa and worn at the 2011 ACM Awards
  • Lorrie Morgan’s full-length Caché gown, worn on the Grand Ole Opry
  • Julie Roberts’ one-shouldered, matte jersey cocktail gown made by Caché and worn on the Grand Ole Opry
