Taylor Swift isn’t scheduled to appear at the 2012 CMA Music Festival, but fans will still be able get their Taylor fix – even if it doesn’t include seeing Taylor in person.
The Country Music Hall of Fame will be opening an exhibit dedicated to Taylor Swift and her phenomenally successfully Speak Now World Tour. The exhibit will feature costumes Swift wore during the performance of certain songs, as well as the instruments used during the tour.
The exhibit will certainly be a required stop for many teenage fans that idolize Swift. A recent press release stated the Country Music Hall of Fame is excited about the new exhibit. The Hall of Fame has had a multi-media presentation dedicated to Swift since 2010, which has been a very popular part of the museum.
“Taylor Swift’s Speak Now tour was one of the most successful tours in all of music, and she has been an ambassador for country music, raising awareness of our genre literally around the globe,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “We are delighted to be able to bring our visitors up close and personal with many of their favorite elements from the show, from the colorful and elaborate stage costumes and beautiful instruments, to the magnificent ‘Juliet balcony’ that Taylor entered near the conclusion of each show and ‘flew’ around the circumference of each venue. “
The exhibit will open on June 6. Adults tickets are $22 and up. Youth tickets are $15 and up. Tickets can be purchased online at countrymusichalloffame.org.
People who attend the GAC Breakfast at the Country Music Hall of Fame will be able to view exhibits free of charge.
