The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its complete slate of exhibitions for 2018, which will include exhibits featuring Little Big Town, Ralph Stanley, the Judds and Emmylou Harris.
“For over 50 years, the museum has shared with its visitors the rich and diverse history of country music, while documenting the music’s ongoing evolution. Our 2018 exhibits continue that tradition,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “Next year we will look at a variety of subjects, including the career of a legendary Country Music Hall of Fame member who has been embraced by the Americana movement, and the life of an iconic mountain musician who influenced her. As we examine the legacies of these country music greats, we will also look at some of the most awarded talent of today.”
In addition to examining the stories of individual artists, the museum will also unveil the exhibition American Currents: The Music of 2017, on March 9, 2018. The exhibit will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the major country music happenings in the prior year. Highlights of 2017 will be represented by artifacts from Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Randy Travis and Chris Young, with more to be announced.
The Little Big Town exhibit will open on June 29, the Ralph Stanley exhibit will open July 13, the Judds will open Aug. 3, and the Emmylou Harris exhibit will open Oct. 5.
The Country Music Hall of Fame And Museum is one of the most visited museums in the United States, with an unduplicated collection of more than 2.5 million artifacts, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017.
