Rock Hall at the Ryman New Exhibit


What happens when you combine the Mother Church of Country Music with the home of Rock & Roll? You end up with an incredible new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame exhibit at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The multi-year partnership will see more interactive exhibits being on display at Ryman’s re-developed vestibule space. Both entities share many commonalities in their history and approach to recognizing the best artists and bands that music has to offer. The Ryman Auditorium has seen 130 years of Country Music history whilst the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (based in Cleveland, Ohio USA) has honored over 100 Rock & Roll inductees over the years and features their instruments, memorabilia, and wardrobes. Many of these artists have a foot in each genre of music including Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and recently Dolly Parton. The new exhibit will feature an outfit worn by the late Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton’s Blackie Fender Stratocaster guitar, Elvis Presley’s sued coat and Joan Jett’s red latex halter top. Earlier in 2022 the Ryman was officially certified as a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Landmark joining the company of eleven other locations around the country including Austin City Limits. Besides impressive exhibits the Ryman will also be featuring more Roc & Roll Hall of Fame members performances in the future. Check the events calendar to see who is playing the Ryman during your upcoming visit to town as shows frequently sellout. There is no extra fee to view the Rock Hall at the Ryman exhibit as it is included in the daytime tour admission tickets. Visitors are also allowed to attend the Soul of Nashville immersive theatre with other Star exhibits and have a souvenir photo taken on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium. Both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Ryman strive to educate visitors on the importance of music and how it brings us all together as one people. As a local Nashvillian I am thrilled to see this partnership between the two institutions and hope to see even more collaborations in the future. It has not been determined how long this current Rock Hall at the Ryman exhibit will last, although I am certain they will change out the artifacts and artists featured on a regular basis. This provides another great reason to put a visit to the Ryman Auditorium on the top of your must visit list when coming to the Music City.  Nashville, and the Ryman, have become more than a Country Music mecca as they have embraced all styles and genres of music and artists. This perpetuates the melting pot of music that the city and Ryman Auditorium have consistently been known for. Rock Hall at the Ryman exhibit is open to view now at the Ryman Auditorium.
