This post is written in collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This past weekend, my husband and I took a day date. One Saturday a month we like to go explore and do something we’ve never done before. Last week we went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Can you believe I’m a Nashville native and have never explored the museum?! Today I’m going to share all about our visit and a great program I know you Nashvillians will LOVE.
So, about the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, it’s one of the largest museums in the world and home to more than 2.5 million artifacts spanning from country music’s roots to current day. Their mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the evolving history and traditions of country music. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has world-class exhibitions, publications and educational programs.
Some of these programs include unique programs for kids, families and guests of all ages. This includes weekly Songwriter Sessions, Musician Spotlights, interviews with musicians and family programs in the Taylor Swift Education Center. If you’re 18 and under and live in Davidson, Cheatham, Robertson, Sumner, Williamson or Wilson County you can get free walk-up admission outside of school hours.
Current exhibits at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum are Brooks & Dunn: Kings of Neon, Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors, Still Rings True: The Enduring Voice of Keith Whitley, American Currents: The Music of 2018, Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s, and Sing Me Back Home.
Now, if you’re like me, ages 21 to 45 and you want a membership to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, you might want to consider its Troubadour Membership. This membership directly supports the museum’s Community Counts initiative that I mentioned above.
If you get a Troubadour Membership, you’ll enjoy benefits like:
- Quarterly networking events curated for young professionals.
- Free museum admission.
- Access to hundreds of one-of-a-kind programs.
- Discount on tours at Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print.
- 10% discount at museum retail shops and restaurants. (Includes The Museum Store, Circa, Hatch Show Print, 222, Red Onion and Bajo Sexto Taco.)
I mentioned above that a benefit was a quarterly networking event for young professionals. One of these events is happening next week! On Thursday, September 5, come hang out with me at Nightfall at the Hall. This is an after-hours celebration and Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville breakout artist Devin Dawson will take the stage. The event starts at 6 p.m. and includes complimentary bites and adult beverages and rooftop games.
Earlier this month, the museum launched a Membership Drive, offering young professionals 10% off Troubadour memberships through September 5. You can be a member for just $50! After September 5, the price will go back to $60. Get the full scoop here!
