Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum
Started in 1961 by the Country Music Association, the Country Music Hall of Fame selected its first three inductees, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, and Fred Rose. In 1967, the CMA opened the first Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Music Row in Nashville, TN. In 2000, the original building was closed, and in 2001 the new Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened, complete with Hall of Fame Rotunda to honor the stars.
