The Power Of Women In Country Music explores the rich history of women as a driving force in country music. From Maybelle and Sara Carter to Patsy Montana, Patsy Cline, Wanda Jackson, and Emmylou Harris, women have always been instrumental in shaping the sound of country and documenting their own saga in song.

Titled “The Power of Women in Country Music,” the exhibit highlights artists including Dolly Parton, Rosanne Cash, Mickey Guyton, Rissi Palmer, Carly Pearce, LeAnn Rimes, Taylor Swift, Shania Twain and more. The exhibit also delves into the past and present of female artists in country music, highlighting the stories of Maybelle and Sara Carter, Patsy Montana, Patsy Cline, Wanda Jackson, Emmylou Harris, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, Yola, Maren Morris, Brandi Carlile and more.

The exhibit will run through Oct. 2. Tickets for Museum members will go on sale starting Thursday (April 28) and for the general public on April 30.

On May 31, LeeAnn Rimes will join a special public program moderated by Marissa R. Moss, author of Her Country: How the Women of Country Music Became the Success They Were Never Supposed to Be.
