Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Inspiring creativity and togetherness at this uncertain time.

For more than 50 years, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has shared the country music story – from its past to present day – through exhibitions, educational programs and publications.

The museum contributes significantly to Nashville’s prosperity, generating an economic impact of more than $81 million in 2019. Additionally, more than 2,300 full-time equivalent jobs were supported by the museum and its audiences, and $8.3 million in revenue was generated for local and state government.       

In 2019, nearly 107,000 guests participated in 1,450 hands-on educational programs and more than 40,000 students engaged in museum programs for schools.

Music is a powerful, unifying tool.  To inspire creativity and togetherness at this uncertain time, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced that its most popular educational programs, Words & Music at Home and Songwriter Sessions, have been adapted for the general public to access at home via our website and Instagram Live.
