The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum celebrated the opening of its latest exhibit, “Night Train to Nashville: Music City Rhythm & Blues Revisited,” last night (April 25).

The exhibit explores the significance of Nashville’s pioneering R&B scene and its important role in the city becoming a world-renowned music center. “Night Train to Nashville: Music City Rhythm & Blues Revisited” is a 20th anniversary edition of the museum’s award-winning original exhibit, which was featured in its galleries from 2004–2005. It includes many of the same items and themes, along with additional/newly-discovered artifacts and photographs. The exhibit is included with museum admission and runs through September 2025.

It is supported by a free-to-access “Night Train to Nashville” online exhibit, which launched last year, and was made possible by a major grant awarded from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). A newly-published exhibit companion book is also available now and includes more than 100 photographs and descriptions of classic R&B records cut in Nashville.
