Country Music Hall of Fame Online Exhibits

The Country Music Hall of Fame (last featured in the 06-01-2001 Scout Report) is open for onsite visitors, but for those who are unable to get to Nashville in person, two online exhibits funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities provide a glimpse of its collections. The first, Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, explores the impact of Bob Dylan's 1960s Nashville recordings, Johnny Cash's TV show, and the ace musicians known as the "Nashville Cats." The exhibit consists of six sections: Dylan in Nashville, Johnny Cash, The Nashville Cats, Artists That Followed, A New Music City, and Today's Influences, and concludes with a link to a list of the performances, books, and recordings that trace the impact of these artists into the 21st century. The second online exhibit, Suiting the Sound: The Rodeo Tailors Who Made Country Stars Shine Brighter, introduces the clothiers who dressed country music and rodeo stars in rhinestones, including Bernard "Rodeo Ben" Lichtenstein, Nathan Turk, Nudie Cohn, and others. Visitors can view the rhinestone-studded garb worn by musicians from Gene Autry to Lil Nas X and watch videos of performers wearing the sparkly clothes, all while learning the backstory of the tailors behind these iconic fashions.
