Country Music Hall of Fame’s “Bakersfield” Exhibit Extended Through 2014

Collection features Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country.

Great country music comes from all parts of the world, and California in particular has produced some awesome country stars.

Due to the overwhelming success of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's exhibit The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country, the Hall of Fame has extended its tenure through 2014.

The exhibit is narrated by Dwight Yoakam, who, despite hailing from Kentucky, is known for bringing his brand of honky-tonk twang to the West Coast. Visitors are given a history lesson on the roots and raising of California country, while the exhibit also spotlights some of the biggest stars in this musical movement along with their stage costumes, instruments and more. There's also some pretty great Bakersfield merch in the gift shop.

Plan a visit the next time you're in Nashville.
