    Martina McBride: The Power of Her Voice

    For more than twenty-five years, Martina McBride has been creating substantive, socially aware country music, her anthems of personal empowerment—including “Independence Day” and “A Broken Wing”—contributing a much-needed perspective to the genre. The exhibition Martina McBride: The Power of Her Voice explores one of country music’s most distinctive voices.

  • Florida Georgia Line

    Florida Georgia Line: Mix it Up Strong

    The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum explores the music, career, friendship, and collaboration of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, from their meeting in college to their duo’s swift emergence as a multiple-award-winning, genre-blending fan favorite.

Hall of Fame Members

View All
  • Patsy Cline

    The most popular female country singer in recording history, Patsy Cline has achieved iconic status since her tragic early death at age thirty in 1963. Cline was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973, and is frequently invoked as a standard for female vocalists, having inspired scores of singers including k. d. lang, Loretta Lynn, Linda Ronstadt, Trisha Yearwood, and Wynonna Judd.

  • DeFord Bailey

    DeFord Bailey was an influential harmonica player in both country music and blues, one of the Grand Ole Opry’s most popular early performers, and country’s first African-American star.

  • Brooks & Dunn

    Brooks & Dunn

    Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn—performing together as Brooks & Dunn—charged onto the country music scene in 1991. They went on to become the best-selling country duo of all time, with forty-one Top Ten hits (including twenty #1s) and two decades of packing concert arenas. They collected a mountain of music-industry honors, including two Grammys, nineteen CMA awards, and twenty-five ACM awards.

  • Reba McEntire

    Reba McEntire

    Reba McEntire ranks as the most successful female country performer of her generation, and she has been cited as a role model by nearly every successful woman to follow in her wake. She has achieved more than fifty Top Ten singles and more #1 country albums than any other female artist. McEntire has won CMA Female Vocalist of the Year four times and was CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1986. She also has won three Grammy Awards, and in 2018 received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors for her lifetime of contributions to American culture.

  • Hank Williams

    Hank Williams

    Hank Williams’s legend has long overtaken the rather frail and painfully introverted man who spawned it. Almost singlehandedly, Williams set the agenda for contemporary country songcraft, but his appeal rests as much in the myth that even now surrounds his short life.
