Reba McEntire, George Strait Outfits Update Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit

Reba McEntire’s blue suede gown from the 1986 CMA Awards and George Strait’s cowboy hat, starched shirt and Wrangler jeans will be added to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s main exhibit on May 14. McEntire’s black-and-white boots from her 1977 Opry debut and Strait’s lasso and hand-tooled leather belt will also be displayed. Wynonna Judd’s custom-made Gibson Les Paul guitar and Naomi Judd’s black jersey gown worn to the 1990 ACM Awards also join the exhibit which commemorates country music’s “new traditionalists.” Ricky Skaggs’ mandolin that he played as a 7-year-old prodigy on Flatt & Scruggs’ TV series also will be on display. In addition, Naomi Judd and former RCA label head Joe Galante will be interviewed at the museum on May 15 about country music’s recent past.
