The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s latest “American Currents: State of the Music” exhibit is set to open on March 8, featuring a selection of artists, writers and more that were prominent in country music throughout 2022.

This year’s exhibit will include Luke Combs, Charley Crockett, Sierra Ferrell, Rhiannon Giddens, Ashley Gorley, Hardy, Cody Johnson, Wynonna Judd, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Parker McCollum, Scotty McCreery, Reba McEntire, Amanda Shires, Billy Strings, Sunny Sweeney, Molly Tuttle, Shania Twain, Morgan Wallen and Lainey Wilson.

The “Unbroken Circle” section of the exhibit will highlight the musical connections between artists and organizations, including those who have influenced them or share musical perspectives. Featured pairings include the Black Opry and the Black Country Music Association, Jordan Davis and Bob McDill, Miko Marks and Loretta Lynn, and Morgan Wade and Elvis Presley.

“Each year through the ‘American Currents’ exhibit, the museum documents and reports on the music and events that helped shape the previous year, examining a wide scope of contributions,” explains Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. “Last year, we witnessed innovative collaborations, varied musical perspectives and well-deserved honors for emerging artists and established luminaries. ‘American Currents’ allows us to highlight these moments and artists, sharing their significance in country music history.”

Presented annually, “American Currents” takes a look at the genre over the past year to explore musical developments, artist achievements and notable events, as determined by the museum’s curators and editorial staff. The exhibit will run until February 2024.
