The exhibit highlights the past, present, and future of country music’s greatest female trailblazers and will run through Sunday, February 26, 2023.
The exhibit not only highlights international superstars, including Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, and Taylor Swift, but also contemporary North Carolina artists, such as Rhiannon Giddens, Rissi Palmer, and Kasey Tyndall.
Through this exhibition and accompanying programs and concerts, the North Carolina Museum of History further explores the stories of the incredible women who have made country music the genre that it is today and amplifies North Carolina artists who are blazing a trail in the genre.
“I’m excited to take my daughters [to the exhibit]. … I’m a fan of country music more than anything. I’m going to be fangirling out about the stuff I’m going to see,” said Rissi Palmer, country music star and North Carolina native. “I’m also going to be freaking out because I’m here next to all these people whose music I own and concerts I’ve gone to. It’s unreal.”
This is a ticketed exhibition, and tickets can be purchased online or in person at the museum store. NEW: MOHA/museum members get unlimited FREE visits throughout the run of the exhibition! Join now to enjoy this incredible benefit.
