I’m proud that something I helped make with such an excellent team is getting this kind of recognition.
Made In Tennessee has this to say:
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, tells a story of musical heritage—from the Bristol Sessions to today. The East Tennessee region continues to influence music around the world. The museum is home to 12,000 square feet of exhibit space and features a rotating exhibit gallery, music mixing and listening stations. Visitors can also appreciate multiple theater experiences and interactive, technology-rich media. Live year-round performances and educational programming make new converts and keep established fans entertained.
And I’ll even drive traffic to FoxNews for the sake of this museum! The “Unbroken Circle” theater mentioned below was largely the work of my very talented office mate Christopher Richmond.
Trisha Gene Brady of The Black Lillies is one of several artists who perform “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” in the museum’s Immersion Theater exhibit, which also features Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and others. Brady visited the museum in September, and says she got emotional when she saw it: “Of course I cried a little bit, there were tears there.”
