The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will debut the exhibition Miranda Lambert: Backstage Access, beginning May 16, 2014. The exhibit will run through Nov. 9, 2014.
The “backstage access” will feature an array of gowns and stage costumes, awards, and a custom pink Gibson acoustic guitar.
Opening weekend activities will include a songwriter session featuring Lambert’s Pistol Annies bandmate Ashley Monroe (also the purveyor of the acclaimed solo project Like A Rose), a family songwriting program, and a free film screening. Later in the month, some of Lambert’s frequent co-writers including Nicolle Galyon, Natalie Hemby and Jimmy Robbins will participate in a songwriter round.
“Miranda Lambert is one of contemporary music’s most popular and acclaimed artists, and for good reason,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “She’s a dynamic performer; an emotive and powerful vocalist whose voice is equally at home with lyrics tough or tender; and a songwriter with a deft touch for feeling and place. Her numerous hits, from empowering anthems like ‘Gunpowder and Lead’ to introspective set pieces like ‘The House That Built Me,’ are rich contributions to country music’s storytelling tradition. We are looking forward to taking our visitors behind the scenes with Miranda during her amazing successes in 2013.”
Lambert’s fifth album, Platinum, is slated for release June 3 on RCA Nashville.
