Country Music Hall of Fame to Shine Spotlight on ABC’s ‘Nashville’
Can’t get enough of the television series ‘Nashville‘? You’re not alone. That’s why the Country Music Hall of Fame in Music City is going to devote an entire exhibit to highlighting the ABC series that put Nashville in the homes of viewers all over the country.
The CMHoF will unveil the exhibit, called ‘Nashville: Like a Country Song’ on April 5. The special exhibition will feature costumes, props and more from the acclaimed drama, and it will be housed within the museum’s permanent exhibition on the second floor.
If you can’t get to Music City to check out Rayna Jaymes’ and Juliette Barnes’ gorgeous dresses in person, don’t worry. ‘Nashville: Like a Country Song’ will be on display through Oct. 31, 2013.
The exhibit’s name is especially appropriate, considering it comes from something that ‘Nashville’ producer Callie Khouri said about the show.
“[The whole show] plays out like a country song,” she explained. “There’s heartbreak; there’s cryin'; there’s drinkin’. The whole notion is to live in the world of country music, so you’ll get everything that goes along with that.”
In addition to special costumes worn by the two leading ladies of ‘Nashville,’ the CMHoF display will include: a script of the pilot episode, autographed by cast members Powers Boothe, Clare Bowen, Connie Britton, Eric Close, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Hayden Panettiere and Robert Ray Wisdom, a guitar and personalized strap played by Deacon Claybourne (Esten), a Boho-inspired dress worn by Scarlett O’Connor (Bowen) and other pieces from the set and specific episodes.
