Honky Tonkin’: Twenty Years on Lower Broad

2 PM • COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM 

CMA THEATER • 222 FIFTH AVENUE SOUTH

But in a July 1995 Billboard cover story, Chet Flippo wrote about a “new scene” that had “developed on its own in Music City.” Encouraged by the 1994 opening of the remodeled Ryman Auditorium, progressive, tradition-based country artists like BR549, Paul Burch, Greg Garing, R.B.

Free to museum members and Americanafest badge-holders. Limited seating. Program pass required.
