    Emmylou Harris to Be Featured in Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit in 2018
    Jack Spencer

    Emmylou Harris will be the subject of a major new exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, opening October 5, 2018, the museum announced today. Harris is a twelve-time Grammy winner and a Country Music Hall of Fame member.

    From her start with Gram Parsons in California during the early 1970s to her acceptance in Nashville and mainstream country music in the 1980s, Harris has brought millions of new listeners to country music. Over forty years into a remarkable career, she has amassed twenty-seven Top Ten hits, including seven that reached #1. She also has placed fourteen albums in the Top Ten of the Billboard country album chart.

    "From my first album release in 1975, country music has embraced me with open arms. This exhibit at the Hall of Fame makes me realize once more how grateful and honored I am to be part of such a remarkable musical family," said Harris.

    A champion of songwriters and musicians alike, Harris gave early career boosts to Rodney Crowell, Ricky Skaggs, Sam Bush and Buddy Miller. Countless country singers cite Harris as an influence, including Suzy Bogguss, Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Dixie Chicks, Patty Loveless and Trisha Yearwood. Harris's influence extends beyond country music, too, with acclaimed artists Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, and many others citing her as an artistic guidepost. Examining Harris through her music and her collection of personal artifacts will provide new insight into one of country music's most important and visionary artists.

    Other artists to be featured in Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibits announced today include Little Big Town, Ralph Stanley, and the Judds.

    "For over 50 years, the museum has shared with its visitors the rich and diverse history of country music, while documenting the music's ongoing evolution," said museum CEO Kyle Young. "Our 2018 exhibits continue that tradition."

    One of the most visited museums in the United States, with a collection of more than 2.5 million artifacts, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2017. For more information, visit countrymusichalloffame.org.

Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag.
