Country Music Hall of Fame Offers Free Admission for Ford Community Day

If you’re in Nashville and have always wanted to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, this weekend is a perfect time. The museum is offering free admission for everyone, along with live musical performances, as part of their Ford Community Day, taking place on Sunday, December 19.

Singer-songwriter Georgia Middleman will perform a Songwriter Session from 11:00 to 11:45 AM in the Ford Theater. Callista Clark, Abbey Cone and Tiera will perform from 12:30 to 1:15 in the CMA Theater, followed by Sister Sadie, who will also perform in the Ford Theater from 2:00 to 2:45.

In addition, several family programs will also be available, including dance lessons, hat making, a petting zoo and more.

Exhibits will be available to view as well, including the recently-opened Bill Anderson: As Far As I Can See exhibit.

“I’ve heard all my life that just before a person dies, their life passes before their eyes,” Anderson said at the exhibit’s opening. “Somebody better check my pulse. Because a couple of hours ago, when I laid eyes on my exhibit for the first time, I felt like my life, or at least the very best part of it, was definitely passing right before my eyes. To see 60-plus years come alive again in this incredible display, truly took my breath away. They titled this exhibit As Far As I Can See, but in all honesty, I never saw this far.”

Reservations for tickets to the performances are available at the museum’s website. A limited number of tickets will also be available on December 19. Individual and family level memberships will also be available for purchase at a discount. Find more information here.
