Every once in a while, I'm lucky enough to see a country artist's belongings up close, including their makeup collections, their wardrobe for the night or maybe their guitars. But Miranda Lambert's new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville is going to have it all, all at once. It's like we're all going backstage to hang out with Lambert.
Miranda Lambert: Backstage Access will be open May 16-Nov. 9. And while it's there, you can get a close look at things like her Gibson acoustic guitar with the pink finish and that gorgeous pearloid pickguard, the pink wardrobe case she used during her Locked & Reloaded tour and her boots. You know the ones. Those platinum cowboy boots she's wearing on her upcoming Platinum album cover, which just happen to be from her own Miranda by Miranda Lambert line of footwear.
There will be a couple of her best wardrobes from her music videos, including the Mad Men-esque vintage sky blue lace dress from the bathtub scenes in her "Mama's Broken Heart" video and the black leather top and mini skirt ensemble she wore in Keith Urban's "We Were Us" video.
Plus, the exhibit will showcase the gowns Lambert wore to win armfuls of prestigious awards throughout last year, including the shimmery royal blue plunging Roberto Cavalli from the 2013 CMA Awards, and the heavily-embellished gold, coral and white mini Jovani dress from the 2013 ACM awards.
To top it off, exhibit organizers say Lambert's tweets will provide the "narrative thread of this journey" through her touring life in 2013.
