Jon Pardi to Be Featured in New Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
For the first time in its 50-year history, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its complete slate of exhibitions for the upcoming year.
The museum will unveil a new exhibition, American Currents (The Music of 2016), in March 2017. The exhibit will chronicle the latest chapter in country music’s ever-evolving story through a behind-the-scenes look at all things new and noteworthy from the prior year. Highlights from 2016 will be represented by artifacts from Jon Pardi, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, William Michael Morgan, Maren Morris, Margo Price, Chris and Morgane Stapleton with more to be announced.
“This year the museum celebrates half a century of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history of country music,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “With a great mix of exhibition subjects that range from a legendary Country Music Hall of Fame member to the best of today, our golden anniversary schedule reflects one of the true hallmarks of country music—its constant evolution. As we explore the journeys of these country music greats, whose combined careers span almost 150 years, we also reflect on the museum’s 50-year evolution and celebrate what is ahead.”
One of the most visited museums in the United States, with an unduplicated collection of more than 2.5 million artifacts, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates its fiftieth anniversary in 2017. This first-ever announcement of the full year’s exhibition schedule will be followed by many unique activities celebrating the museum’s golden anniversary milestone. Special programs and concerts will be announced in the coming months.
