Country Music Hall of Fame member, Loretta Lynn, will soon be getting her own exhibit on display. The exhibit will showcase Loretta Lynn’s artifacts, costumes, and personal items from six decades in the music business. It will open on August 25, 2017 and be on display through June 2018.
“I am so happy the Country Music Hall of Fame has asked me to be one of their main exhibits in 2017… gonna show off my 50 some odd years in country music,” Lynn says of the upcoming exhibition. “They best have a big space… I have a lot of stuff!”.
On her 85th birthday on April 14th, Loretta Lynn will be celebrating by performing at the historic Ryman Auditorium. In 1960, she made her Grand Ole Opry debut on the same stage. Her current album, “Full Circle,” is nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Album.
