ABOUT THE MAGAZINES AND WHAT WE WILL SAY IN SOME OF THEM
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum opens this Friday in Bristol. The $10.5 million dollar museum was built in conjunction with Washington, D.C.'s Smithsonian Institution and is a project years in the making for the small town, which straddles the border between Tennessee and Virginia.
The grand opening weekend will feature a number of special events, including a ribbon cutting ceremony and several free concerts from country and bluegrass acts like Carlene Carter, Jim Lauderdale and Ralph Stanley. The museum will also offer discounted admission and special merchandise throughout the weekend.

"The opening of the Birthplace of Country Music Museum is something that our community has been looking forward to for many years, and we take pride in giving our community something that celebrates our rich music heritage," Leah Ross, the museum's executive director, told Kingsport's Times News "This is a very emotional time for the people who have put their heart and soul into this project, and we hope others will view it as a job well done and enjoy our weekend of grand opening events."
The 24,000 square foot museum will feature several different exhibit spaces – featuring both temporary and permanent exhibitions – while also accommodating educational and interactive programming. It's located in the heart of downtown Bristol, on the appropriately named Birth of Country Music Way.
