Bring your friends! Bring your family! Everyone’s invited to explore the Birthplace of Country Music Museum for FREE during our special Community Day!
Learn why Bristol is designated by Congress as the “birthplace of country music” with a deep dive into the story of the legendary 1927 Bristol Sessions, the most influential country music recordings of all time. The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, tells the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions (which included the first recordings of The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers), explores how evolving sound technology shaped their success, and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music. Through award-winning theater experiences and interactive displays, artifacts and text – along with a variety of educational programs, music performances, and community events – the exciting story of these recording sessions and their far-reaching influence comes alive.
Rotating exhibitions from guest curators and other institutions, including the Smithsonian, are featured through out the year in the museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery. Community Day just happens to coincide with the opening day of The Way We Worked, a traveling exhibition from The Smithsonian.
