Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Opens Today

The new Country Music Hall of Fame tells a story, says its director, Kyle Young, and the ceremony Thursday morning (May 17) to open the $37 million, 130,000-square-foot museum will tell a story, too. The celebrity-filled grand opening begins at 9 a.m. CT in front of the museum, and will bring you full coverage later in the day. "We’re going to tell the story of country music and the story of this project through stories and songs," Young says of the symbol-heavy program preceding the public ribbon cutting. More.
