Kenny will bring his signature soulful voice, his catalog of hits and the stories behind the music when he takes the Ford Theater stage as the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s 2012 Artist-in-Residence. The legendary singer has impressively charted a record in each of the past seven decades (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s). He will present two intimate evening performances – one on May 9th and one on May 10th – at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the May 9th show are sold out and only a handful of tickets remain for the May 10th performance. Tickets can be purchased at www.countrymusichalloffame.org. Ticket sales, limited to four tickets per show, are available on a first come, first served basis and are non-refundable.
The museum’s residency program annually honors a musical master who can be credited with contributing a large and significant body of work to American popular music. Honorees are given the museum’s acoustically pristine, 213-seat Ford Theater to showcase their own up-close-and-personal musical experience. Previous honorees include Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Tom T. Hall, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Buddy Miller and Connie Smith.
