Chris Stapleton, Martina McBride and Bill Anderson all have something big to look forward to next year: they’re each getting their own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The Nashville museum revealed its 2020 roster of new exhibits on Wednesday, and it includes dedicated spaces for all three country stars, as well as the return of its annual “American Currents.”
Stapleton’s exhibit opens first on June 26, and will trace his rise from SteelDrivers member and hit songwriter to solo star.
McBride’s follows on August 21, 2020, and it will explore the Kansas native’s roots 28-year recording career, including “A Broken Wing” and “Independence Day.”
Finally, Hall of Famer Anderson gets his own special exhibit, opening November 20.
In a statement, “Whisperin’ Bill” shared that he “grew up dreaming of the day they’d put my ball glove into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, but realized many years ago that wasn’t going to happen.
“But now, knowing that my guitar and maybe a rhinestone suit or two will be put into an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, more than makes up for it.”
All three exhibits will be preceded by the latest “American Currents: State of the Music” opening March 6, 2020. “Currents” puts a variety and wealth of modern artifacts on display while exploring “the most important developments in country music over the previous year.”
