Description: Join cityCURRENT: Powered by Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance, A Higginbotham Company and The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi for a Virtual Tour of The GRAMMY Museum Mississippi, an interactive celebration of the power of music.
Emily Havens, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum, will take us behind the scenes of their two latest exhibits, Stronger Together: The Power of Women in Country Music and Willie Mitchell & The Music of Royal Studios.
An affiliate with the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, GRAMMY Museum Mississippi shares its mission to celebrate the enduring legacies of all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording process, and the history of the premier recognition of excellence in recorded music — the GRAMMY Award.
About the Exhibits: Stronger Together: The Power of Women in Country Music will take visitors on a journey through the history of women in country music, from the early years and post-World War II, to the emergence of Nashville as a country music mecca. The exhibit will feature artifacts from such celebrated female country artists as Brandi Carlile, Maybelle and Sara Carter, Rosanne Cash, Caylee Hammack, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Patsy Montana, Maren Morris, Dolly Parton, Minnie Pearl, Margo Price, LeAnn Rimes, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Yola, and more.
In partnership with Memphis Tourism, the exhibit, titled Willie Mitchell & The Music of Royal Studios, is a collaboration between the Mississippi Museum and Memphis-based Royal Studios, and will tell the story of the iconic studio—one of the oldest in the world that continues to operate today—and the late Willie Mitchell, who ran the studio and produced many artists on its label, Hi Records.
