The Grammy Museum is hosting a new Power Of Women In Country Music exhibit highlighting the past, present and future of country’s greatest female trailblazers. The exhibit launches May 27 and will run through Oct. 2.
The Power Of Women In Country Music explores the rich history of women as a driving force in country music. The exhibit will take visitors on a journey through the history of women in country, from the early years and post-World War II, to the emergence of Nashville as a country music mecca, and to female country artists becoming international pop sensations.
International superstars, including Dolly Parton, Rosanne Cash, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, and Taylor Swift; as well as contemporary artists, such as Mickey Guyton, Rissi Palmer, Leah Turner, Carly Pearce and more will be featured in the new exhibit.
“I was thrilled to have my very own exhibit at the Grammy Museum a few years ago,” shares Parton. “They are fantastic at bringing music memorabilia to the fans. So, of course I wanted to support the Women In Country exhibit. I hope you enjoy a little glimpse into my world, from one country fan to another.”
“I am so inspired by the fearlessness, creativity and resilience of these artists,” adds Kelsey Goelz, Grammy Museum’s Associate Curator and curator of the exhibit. “Each generation of women in country music has paved the way for the next, and now, they’re headlining festivals, winning Grammys, and breaking streaming records.”
Additionally, LeAnn Rimes is scheduled for a special Public Program moderated by Marissa R. Moss, author of Her Country: How the Women of Country Music Became the Success They Were Never Supposed to Be, to celebrate the new exhibit on May 31.
