The Country Music Hall of Fame will be celebrating the recent influx of young country talent with a new exhibit.
The “American Currents” exhibit opens March 17 and tells the story of country music in 2016. Featured artists include Chris and Morgane Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, and Brett Eldredge.
Breakthrough artists like Margo Price, Jon Pardi and Mickey Guyton will also be featured in the exhibit. Visitors will get to view memorabilia from each artist that represents their journey to the top of the charts.
“This year the museum celebrates a half century of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history of country music,” said museum CEO Kyle Young in a press release. “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 careers span almost 150 years, we also reflect on the museum’s 50-year evolution and celebrate what is ahead.”
The American Currents exhibit was the final in a string of special 50th anniversary announcements from the Hall of Fame last week. In 2017, Jason Aldean, Shania Twain, Loretta Lynn, and Tim McGraw & Faith Hill will also get their own individual showcases at the Nashville museum.
