NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s newest exhibit will pay tribute to country music performer Reba McEntire. “Reba: All the Women I Am” opens in the museum’s East Gallery on Aug. 9 and runs through June 8, 2014.
“Reba is the most successful female country performer of her generation, and a major influence on many of the female recording artists who have followed her,” said museum director Kyle Young.
Young noted that McEntire, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011, has not only sold more than 40 million records and had 24 No. 1 hits, but was a pioneer in heightened production values for country concerts with elaborate stages, video screens and multiple costume changes.
“Such innovations are now de rigueur on the tours of top country artists,” he said. “Furthermore, through her work on Broadway, in film, and as the star of two television comedies, Reba has helped to heighten and expand the profile of country music.”
