Country icon Emmylou Harris will be featured in a new exhibition, Emmylou Harris: Songbird’s Flight, opening October 5 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

The exhibit will run until August 4 of next year and will explore her musical and personal journey as an artist for the last fifty years and her extraordinary gift that captivated both her industry peers and her music fans. “Emmylou Harris has spent a lifetime teaching master classes in integrity, musicality, individuality, and harmony, by example rather than by admonition. She seeks, finds and inspires the best in others, whether in melody and rhyme or in kindness and generosity,” said museum CEO Kyle Young in a statement. “We are privileged to pay homage to the career and contributions of one of country music’s most important and visionary artists.”

Harris also adds, “From my first album, in 1975, the country music world has embraced me with open arms. This exhibit at the Hall of Fame makes me realize once more how grateful and honored I am to be part of such a remarkable musical family.”
