Stronger Together: The Power of Women in Country Music Is Now Open

New GRAMMY Museum® exhibit, sponsored by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi celebrates some of country music’s leading ladies.

On November 2 GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi debuted their latest special exhibit, Stronger Together: The Power of Women in Country Music, sponsored by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. The exhibit opened to the public the day following the Museum’s first-ever Gala celebrating its first recipient of the Crossroads of American Music award— Charley Pride. The exhibit is open now through August 23, 2020.

When it comes to country music, women have always been a part of the genre—from the Carter Family and Kitty Wells to Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Carrie Underwood, The Dixie Chicks, Taylor Swift, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, and more. Though the impact of many of these women has been apparent in today’s world of modern country music, the story of women in country music is far from over.

GRAMMY Museum Mississippi has installed an incredible number of one-of-a-kind artifacts that will be on display during this special exhibit, now through August 23, 2020. For a full link to the images from the exhibit, please click here. To see the exhibit in-person, please reach out to

The Museum features a dynamic combination of public events, educational programming, engaging multimedia presentations, and interactive permanent and traveling exhibits, including a Mississippi-centric area that introduces visitors to the impact of Mississippi’s songwriters, producers, and musicians on the traditional and modern music landscape.
