The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum adds a strikingly modern touch to the Nashville skyline and is situated at the epicenter of the city’s rapidly growing core, a block from the popular honky-tonks of Broadway, across the street from Bridgestone Arena and Music City Center, and adjacent to the Omni Hotel. The museum, called the “Smithsonian of country music” because of its unrivaled collection, recently unveiled a $100 million expansion, doubling its size to 350,000 square feet of dynamic state-of-the-art galleries, archival storage, education classrooms, retail stores, and special event space boasting stunning downtown views.
The Hall is a staple for Nashvillians and tourists alike. It serves as a reminder of artists who bring back the early country music nostalgia, such as Roy Acuff, Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn. The current exhibits feature Blake Shelton, Dierks Bently, American Sound and Beauty, Dylan, Cash and the Nashville cats and several others.
