George Jones Museum Opens!

George Jones Museum Grand Opening

Some of the biggest stars in country music turned out for a red carpet event Thursday, April 23rd, to commemorate the grand opening of the George Jones Museum, celebrating the life and work of one of the icons of country music. More than 800 people turned out for the gala event.

Among those seen walking the red carpet were Naomi Judd, Ricky Skaggs, Lee Greenwood, Moe Bandy, Joe Stampley, T. Graham Brown, John Rich, T.G. Sheppard, Dierks Bentley, and Lorrie Morgan. Country music great Jan Howard strolled the museum and shared first-hand stories of the years she knew Jones. But the biggest star of the evening was Jones himself and a musical legacy spanning more than 50 years.

The museum is the result of years’ worth of effort by Jones’s wife, Nancy, who announced the museum’s creation last fall. The grand opening corresponds to the second anniversary of Jones’s passing, April 26. The new museum is a world-class exhibition that documents Jones’s life and cements his position in the history of country music.

“I was so touched to see how all of George’s friends came out tonight,” said Nancy Jones. “George always thought he didn’t have any friends and he’d tell me to build a museum but no one would come. Well, here we are, and everybody came!”

Also among the museum’s first attendees was Jones’s sister, Helen Scroggins. Now 93, she is the last remaining of eight Jones siblings. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, and Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey were among the dozens of celebrities, government officials, and hundreds of music industry professionals who turned out to honor Jones and his legacy.

Spanning more than 44,000 square feet, the George Jones Museum features exhaustive displays of memorabilia and photos, video displays and interactive experiences. The museum also includes a 40-seat, rocking chair theatre that shows clips from Jones’s television broadcasts, concert appearances, and interviews.

In addition to the displays of Jones memorabilia and history in the museum and a lobby gift shop, the George Jones Museum includes two restaurants, a public exhibition space and event center, and a roof-top bar that overlooks the Cumberland River and LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans.

The museum opened to the public Friday, April 24th. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 6-15. The George Jones Museum is located at 128 Second Avenue North, just one block off of Broadway.

index

The 16th annual Country Music Marathon and Half-Marathon will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015.  For the fourth year in a row, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the charity partner for the race.

This year marks the second year that the marathon will start on lower Broadway. Historically the race has started at Centennial Park. The finish line will be at L.P. Field.

More than 30,000 runners are signed up to participate in either the Marathon, Half-Marathon, or 5K. Both the Marathon and Half-Marathon are slated to begin at 7 a.m. Saturday.

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each mile of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this marathon party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.

It wouldn’t be the St. Jude Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon without a live nighttime concert at Bridgestone Arena! After the race celebrate your accomplishment with friends, family, fellow runners and Martina McBride at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series!

You can still register to run!  Get more info online at: http://runrocknroll.com/nashville/register/
