“CMA and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum are connected by history and our shared interest in preserving the legacy, rewarding excellence, and advancing the future of the format,” says Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “This donation is the latest example of CMA’s longstanding commitment to the Hall of Fame. We are proud to support the growth of the Hall and we look forward to using the CMA Theater in a variety of ways that will shine a spotlight on the Country Music industry and format.”

“We are indebted to the CMA for a gift that serves our educational mission, benefits Music City, and serves a worldwide audience,” says Museum Director Kyle Young. “In Nashville, the CMA Theater’s seating capacity is unique and will fill a gap in available performance halls”. who believes the updates will make the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as a hot venue for touring artists and a cherished treasure of musical history (especially Country Music) for years to come.
