I'm no country music lover, but to see the history of a music art/culture is truly worth the experience.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's new digs has been around for a few years now, and has major plans for an expansion in the future. I'm looking forward to heading back once they do expand, because the archives/library takes up a lot of room and so there are two small floors to look at all the memorabilia and listen/watch a bunch of videos and music through the ages.
Here's some pictures I took while going through the museum.......
|Minnie Pearl's outfit - with the price tag on her hat still!|
|Roy Rogers display case|
|Elvis Presley's 1960 "Solid Gold Cadillac"|
|Hank Williams, Jr's "Monday Night Football" outfit|
|Hank Williams Jr|
|Part of the Williams Family Collection Exhibit - including the bear!|
|This is as close as I'm ever gonna get to a Grammy Award (The Judd's to be exact)|
|Dwight Yoakum outfit - a co-worker has rambled off his name a few times, so I took this|
|Taylor Swift guitar and dress|
|Johnny Cash's straight black guitar from the early 2000s|
