Country Music Hall of Fame Spotlights “Nashville”

There's no doubt that the ABC-TV weekly drama Nashville has helped put Music City in the national spotlight. Now, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is returning the favor with a special exhibit that shines a light on Nashville. The exhibit, "Nashville": Like a Country Song, will open to the public on April 5 and will feature costumes, props and other cool items from the popular television show.

The Nashville series focuses on the lives and careers of country rivals Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes, portrayed respectively by Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. But each episode also contains outstanding original tunes from Music Row's top songwriters, helping propel the series to high ratings and critical acclaim. "Nashville": Like a Country Song will highlight both the dramatic and musical elements of the series. Among the items on display are a cocktail dress and peep-toe shoes worn by Connie Britton when she performed "Wrong Song" on the show; a strapless mini-dress worn by Hayden Panettiere; a Gibson LG-2 guitar and a script of the Nashville pilot episode, autographed by several of the cast members.

The Nashville exhibit runs through Oct. 31 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville. Check it out when you're in town.
