Country Music Hall of Fame Reveals New Exhibitions For 2018
One of the most underrated yet prestigious honors to receive as a country music artist is getting a special exhibition dedicated to your career at the Country Music Hall of Fame and many stars will find their spots in the iconic museum next year.
Little Big Town was just one of the numerous acts that earned their place in an exhibition for 2018. Honoring their twenty years as a group, the memorabilia will explore the quartet’s development as one of country music’s biggest bands and discover the greatest highlights from their humble beginnings.
“Having an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something we wouldn’t have ever known to dream of for ourselves, it is beyond a dream come true,” LBT’s Karen Fairchild said of the exhibit. “We are honored to be a part of country music, and are so thankful to all our fans, the music community here in Nashville and the museum for this opportunity.”
The genre definitely grew in major popularity throughout 2017, developing into a global phenomenon with fans spanning from the U.S. to England to Australia and more. Artists such as Eric Church, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and even Luke Combs will all be a part of the ‘American Currents: The Music of 2017,’ and Combs could not be more thrilled about the recent announcement from the Hall.
“Being able to have a little piece of me and what we have accomplished in the last 2 years showcased in the American Currents exhibit is a dream come true,” Combs explained. “As often as I have toured the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with family and friends that come to Nashville, I have often day dreamed about having my stuff here, and now with such a great program, that dream is now a reality.”
Even country icon Emmylou Harris will grace the halls in all her glory for a massive exhibit held later this fall. The star thanked the Hall of Fame for its kindness and recognition upon her 40 years in the industry when she found out the good news.
“From my first album release in 1975, country music has embraced me with open arms. This exhibit at the Hall of Fame makes me realize once more how grateful and honored I am to be part of such a remarkable musical family,” said Harris.
The first new Country Music Hall of Fame exhibition will come to life on March 9, 2018, with the rest following throughout the year.
