Country Western Hall of Fame Museum, Nashville, TN: When we were leaving Nashville in the fall of last year I had read a news article that the Nashville Country Western HOF Museum was going to feature an exhibit about the folk rock scene of the 60s and 70s embracing Nashville. I made a mental note to put this on our list of things to do in Nashville. It lived up to the hype. The exhibit featured stories and memorbilla from that era that started with Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash's collaboration and the ensuing flood of Californina and NY singer songwriters recording in Music City. Great background stories about the producers, sideman and players that supported the albums.
I also enjoyed the exhibits that featured the history of country music up till the 70s when country music was country and featured great songwriters like Cash. Everything after that I pretty much ignored. Barbara, she wasn't so judgemental, she loved it all, especially Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw.
The Kenny Rogers exhibit was also a highlight as well as the Gold Records and hall of fame displays and Elvis's Gold Caddy. All and all, it was three hours well spent.
