countrymusichalloffameThe Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate the completion of its 210,000 sq. ft. expansion at a ceremony on Tuesday, April 15, at 1:15 p.m. CST.

The celebration is open to the public and will take place on an outdoor stage at the corner of Demonbreun and 5th Ave. S., featuring performances by Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Lee Ann Womack, Buddy Miller and more, in addition to appearances by Mayor Karl Dean and other special guests.

“This expansion is a major milestone for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “It also embodies the exciting momentum shaping Nashville today, especially downtown. All of us at the museum are so proud to help lead the current growth that is defining one of the country’s most culturally significant regions.”

Debuting exhibits at the newly expanded museum, which doubles its previous size, include the ACM Gallery, the Fred and Dinah Gretsch Family Gallery, and the Design Gallery: A Window into the Collection. These join previously unveiled sections of the expansion which include the 800-seat CMA Theater, the Taylor Swift Education Center, the letterpress operation Hatch Show Print, and the Event Hall, among others.
