Current Exhibitions

Western Edge:

The Roots and Reverberations of Los Angeles Country-Rock

Western Edge examines the close-knit communities of Los Angeles-based singers, songwriters and musicians who, from the 1960s through the 1980s, embraced country music, frequented local nightclubs, and created and shaped the musical fusion known as “country-rock” – ultimately making an indelible and lasting impact on popular music.

Chris Stapleton:

Since 1978

A dynamic singer, songwriter, and musician, Chris Stapleton proved his musical mettle as an in-demand songwriter in Nashville for more than a decade before his breakout success in 2015. The exhibition Chris Stapleton: Since 1978, presented by Ram Trucks, highlights the breadth of his musical contributions.

Florida Georgia Line
Florida Georgia Line:

Mix It Up Strong

Florida Georgia Line created some of the most popular recordings in country music’s history by embracing hip-hop and rock influences. In less than a decade, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard amassed twenty-five gold, platinum, or multi-platinum singles, with two—"Cruise" and "Meant to Be"—reaching diamond sales certification. Very few artists in any genre accomplish that feat.

Bill Anderson:

As Far as I Can See

Known as “Whisperin’ Bill” for his soft-spoken and conversational singing style, Bill Anderson has placed eighty records on the Billboard charts as a recording artist, reaching country’s Top Twenty more than forty times. As a songwriter, he’s placed songs on the country charts in seven consecutive decades.

American Currents:

State of the Music

Those featured in American Currents: State of the Music are artists, musicians, and songwriters who have shaped the broadly defined genre of country music.
