The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is the unrivaled home to one of America's most popular art forms - Country Music.

Election to the Hall of Fame is the most esteemed honor in country music. Visitors agree that the Hall of Fame Rotunda inspires reverence for the deepest roots of the music. Here, inside this unbroken circle of honor, visitors can learn of the contributions that each member made to this musical story.

In addition to safeguarding over two million artifacts, the museum's recently expanded building features over 64,000 square feet of gallery space in which the story of country music is told with permanent and limited-engagement exhibitions.

Touring the two floors of the museum's gallery spaces, guests will follow the evolution of country music, within the context of American history. Visitors experience that evolution through a diverse mix of displayed artifacts, video footage, and carefully selected sound recordings. Biographical panels and audio tours tell the stories of those who have shaped the music, from Jimmie Rodgers to Hank Williams, through Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, to Garth and Reba, and beyond.

Many artifacts from today's groundbreaking artists such as Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban are on display in the contemporary gallery space. Visitors of all ages discover connections between country music's past and artists of today, and will have a chance to engage with interactive stations that will allow guests to become "Certified Country." Highlights include recording and song writing areas, a forty-foot guitar, trivia, and more.

Nestled on Music Row, HISTORIC RCA STUDIO B is one of the most famous studios in the world. More than 35,000 songs were recorded here by stars such as Elvis, Dolly Parton, and more, of which over 1,000 songs became hits.

HATCH SHOW PRINT is one of America's oldest working Letterpress Print Shops, and has created original art for Elvis Presley, Grand Ole Opry stars, and many of today's artists. Hatch produces reprints of classic posters, and creates new work daily. Shop for a piece of history, and enjoy a tour of this Nashville icon.
