The Country Music Hall of Fame is a vast collection of archives and library storage which includes more than 2.5 million artifacts! Along with this fascinating wall of Platinum and Gold records, you’ll find ……..
- Nearly 200,000 sound recordings, including an estimated 98% of all pre-World War II country recordings released commercially
- Approximately 500,000 photographs
- More than 30,000 moving images on film, video and digital formats. Singer Glen Campbell narrates a video history of country music. There is also very rare documentary footage of a father and son buck-dancing at the 1932 Old-time Fiddlers’ Convention in Star, North Carolina. And there’s rare video footage of Hall of Fame members the Jordanires, Patsy Montana, Webb Pierce, the Louvin Brothers, Marty Robbins, Carl Smith and Jimmie Rodgers.
This is one of the ‘must-sees’ of Nashville…. even if you are not much of a Country & Western music fan!
