I love the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. It’s just one of those places I have to visit whenever I get to Music City. What a loss it would have been to Nashville (and to all of us), if the Museum had to give up instruments that once belonged to Maybelle Carter, Johnny Cash, and Bill Monroe. Fortunately, as a part of a $750,000 settlement, they will remain at the Museum.
I won’t pretend to understand what the lawsuit was all about. But it had something to do with a bankruptcy, and an estate settlement, and the things housed at the Museum. You can read the whole story at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum website.
Anyone who enjoys country music, and has never had the opportunity to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, I hope you get that chance sometime soon. That place in itself is well worth the visit to Nashville.
The photo at the top is the lobby of the Museum. The white racing suit belonged to Marty Robbins, and the yellow and blue sequined suits on the left belonged to Hank Williams Sr. there are so many great treasures housed there.
I love hearing about things like this. Seems Garth Brooks paid a visit to Karen McKenney and her son in the hospital, after she read their story on the Internet,about how they both suffered burns from a fire. Garth not only visited, but brought gifts for the family. and he did it because he wanted to.
While word has obviously gotten out about the visit and the gifts, Garth arrived at the hospital without a lot of fanfare, and without cameras to document what he was up to. Way to go, Garth. I think that’s totally awesome.
Later, I’m a little late this morning. Have to get myself in gear. See you soon!
