The exhibit focuses on a collection of performance costumes, vintage photos, instruments and other artifacts, compiled by Marty himself. The exhibit first opened in Nashville in 2007. It will remain at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame until March 1, 2009. “I greatly admire the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and am a frequent visitor,” says Marty. “My collection is primarily based around country music. However, as a collector, I’ve always kept in mind what I’ve witnessed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We all contribute to each other’s story.” The collection includes outfits worn by such stars as Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash, along with Hank Williams’ handwritten lyrics to “Cold, Cold Heart” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.”
