Country Music Hall of Fame
Established in the musical heart of Nashville in 1967, the Country Music Hall of Fame is an essential and exciting stop for your group while visiting Nashville. Considered the Smithsonian of Country Music, this hall of fame aims to collect, preserve, and interpret the evolving history and traditions of country music, which it does spectacularly. Inside this 350,000 square foot wonder, your group will find exhibits, publications, and various educational programs that highlight the enduring beauty and cultural importance of country music.
There are some two million items within the American accredited museum, as well as the dynamic state of the art galleries, archival storage, educational classrooms, retail stores, and special event spaces.
Your group will delight in the opportunity to look through the history of the most popular and influential country music stars, the very first to be inducted into the hall of fame being Jimmie Rodgers, Fred Rose, and Hank Williams. Be sure to check out the Sing Me Back Home display, consisting of the history and sounds of countries origins and traditions.
Your group will have the opportunity to choose from several exciting country music tours, such as the Star For a Day tour, Legends Lunch and Lyrics tour, Hatch Show Letterpress tour, or fan favorite Cash on Cash tour, a two-hour private concert and Q&A with Johnny and June’s son. On any tour, you will see the 776 seat CMA Theater, the Taylor Swift Educational Center, and Nashville’s oldest surviving studio. The studio on this premises has seen the likes of Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, and Waylon Jennings.
