“I am so happy the Country Music Hall of Fame has asked me to be one of their main exhibits in 2017…gonna show off my 50 some odd years in country music!,” exclaimed Loretta on hearing news of the exhibition. “They best have a big space…I have a lot of stuff!  I’m so proud to share my life, and music with the Hall of Fame.  Y’all come see us!”
