Not only has the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum officially expanded to over 350,000 sq. ft. this week, but membership is also growing. Notably the Troubadour Society, a group of young professionals who have contributed to $40,000 in museum support from dues and sponsorships since 2012.
Yesterday evening (April 16), a segment of the nearly 400-member group convened in the Hall’s Rotunda for the first of four exclusive, annual events, offering complementary wine and beer alongside fresh vegetables, cornbread turkey poppers, and chips and spinach dip before museum doors were opened.
Ten-thousand of the new square footage are devoted to gallery space, including the Taylor Swift Education Center, which is located at the beginning of the museum, along with the Design Gallery alcove, currently featuring Glen Campbell memorabilia. At the opposite end, the Dinah & Fred Gretsch Family Gallery and ACM Gallery cap one’s journey through the museum, offering an interactive exploration through many contemporary artifacts and displays.
Helmed by the CMHoF’s Rachel Weingartner and the Troubadour Society Committee of around 20 individuals, the goal is to unite the future of the Hall with the history.
Perks include invitations to many museum events, All for the Hall pre-sale and VIP after party in May, and a yearly Nightfall at the Hall, aimed at outreach for industry and non-industry executives alike, who care about the hall. More information for a $60 annual program is available to individuals under 40 years old.
The Troubadours will soon gather for an exclusive mixer to design Hatch Show Prints.
