Miranda Lambert Dreamed About Having Her Own Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
Miranda’s gowns and awards give fans “backstage access” to her life and career.
Miranda Lambert welcomed industry and media members to a special preview of her exhibit, Miranda Lambert: Backstage Access, at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Wednesday night (May 14). The exhibit will open to the public Friday, May 16.
As suggested by the title, the exhibit will give fans an up-close look at Miranda’s stage life. Items such as the Roberto Cavalli gown she wore at the 2013 Country Music Association Awards, her custom Gibson acoustic guitar and the outfit for her “Mama’s Broken Heart” video are all on display. In a special innovative touch, Miranda’s own tweets provide the narrative thread of this journey through her life. Fans will also get a glimpse of Miranda’s awards, stage costumes and other artifacts.
“They did such a beautiful job of making it real,” Miranda said prior to the opening ceremony. “It brought back memories of everything that’s happened [in my career] over the last couple of years.”
A grateful Miranda took the podium to address the attendees in the Hall of Fame rotunda. “I’m really thankful to be here,” she said. “I can’t believe that I have something in the Hall of Fame—a space of my own. When you’re a little girl standing at the mirror singing songs into your hair brush, you kind of dream about this moment. To have a spot in this place is so special and so surreal. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it and how much I cherish it.”
Following the opening reception, guests were invited to see the exhibit for themselves. For more on Miranda Lambert: Backstage Access and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, pick up the June 9 issue of Country Weekly, on stands May 30.
