The Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum announced that the lives and careers of Chris Stapleton, Martina McBride and Bill Anderson will be featured in individual exhibits in 2020.
- Chris Stapleton: June 26 (opening date)
- Martina McBride: Aug. 21
- Bill Anderson: Nov. 20
Additional details specific to each exhibit will be revealed as the opening date approaches in 2020.
“I’m proud to get to share pieces of our musical journey at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Chris.
“Having an exhibit in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something I’ve had on my dream list for a long, long time,” said Martina. “Being able to share moments and mementos from my life and career with my fans and country music fans from all over the world is both humbling and exciting. I’m so grateful to be a part of country music.”
“I grew up dreaming of the day they’d put my ball glove into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, but realized many years ago that wasn’t going to happen,” said Bill. “But now, knowing that my guitar and maybe a rhinestone suit or two will be put into an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, more than makes up for it. When our Hall does an exhibit, they really do it up right. I am thrilled to know that I am about to be a small part of their incredible legacy.”
In addition, the Museum’s annual American Currents: State of the Music exhibit will return in 2020, while the Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s exhibit, which opened in May 2018, will continue through February 2021.
