Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum Celebrates the Genre With American Currents Exhibit

If you’re planning a trip to Nashville in 2022 you might want to stop by the Country Music Hall Of Fame & Museum and check out their new exhibit American Currents: State Of The Music.

The Country Music Hall of Fame shares, “Through this annual exhibition, the Museum documents country music’s evolving history, diverse sounds, and broad cultural influence. In another year characterized by the complexities of the pandemic, the continued pursuit of social justice and more, country music stood out as a microcosm of American culture. The new installment of American Currents offers perspectives on music and events that shaped the genre in 2021.”

The exhibition American Currents: State of the Music runs March 4, 2022, through February 5, 2023, at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville.
