The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has appointed Lisa Davis Purcell as Vice President of Development. She will oversee the efforts to generate contributed income and support its mission to preserve the evolving history and traditions of country music and educate diverse audiences.

“Lisa is the perfect fit for us at this juncture in the museum’s rapid and sustained growth,” said Kyle Young, Museum Director. “She’s a mission-oriented executive and well integrated into both the non-profit and music industry sectors of Nashville. And, as a longtime member of the museum’s Honor Society, Lisa already has demonstrated her commitment to supporting our work.”

“The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum not only honors and preserves the history of country music, from its folk roots to the present day; it also provides local, national and global audiences with access to artists, artifacts and educational programs that celebrate the power of this uniquely American art form,” said Purcell. “I am honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with the museum’s incredible team of professionals and with the generous volunteers and donors who dedicate their time, talent and treasure to sustain and advance the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s important work.”

For the past seven years, Purcell served as VP of External Affairs for Hands On Nashville. Purcell previously worked in the program and administrative departments of diverse arts organizations, including the Frick Art & Historical Center, Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Frist Center for the Visual Arts and the Tennessee Arts Commission. She has served as a grant review panelist for the National Endowment for the arts, and she has worked for music business charity T.J. Martell Foundation, to support medical research.

Purcell holds both undergraduate and master’s degrees in art history from West Virginia University and a certificate in executive leadership from Belmont University.
