Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris, winner of 13 Grammys and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy, will be featured in a new exhibition, "Emmylou Harris: Songbird's Flight" opening October 5th at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibit will run until August 4, 2019.
The exhibit will explore the musical and personal journeys of an artist who has, for nearly fifty years, captivated both her industry peers and her music fans. Emmylou commands great respect in the worldwide music community, and the exhibit will tell her story and expand her legacy by sharing her compelling music with museum visitors, who number more than a million annually.
“Emmylou Harris has spent a lifetime teaching master classes in integrity, musicality, individuality, and harmony, by example rather than by admonition. She seeks, finds and inspires the best in others, whether in melody and rhyme or in kindness and generosity,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “We are privileged to pay homage to the career and contributions of one of country music’s most important and visionary artists.”
"Emmylou Harris: Songbird’s Flight" includes many unique items such as Harris’ first guitar, a Kay 1160 Deco Note, built c. 1965, and a jacket designed by Manuel Cuevas that Harris wore on the cover of the album Trio and in performance with Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt. Emmylou will participate in a special program in the museum’s CMA Theater on Saturday, November 3, 2018 which will be streamed live to museum members.
