The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has announced a new exhibit, opening March 24, 2012, entitled The Bakersfield Sound:  Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country.  The exhibit will run for two years and will focus not only on Buck Owens and Merle Haggard but the sidemen, writers, and producers who helped develop the Bakersfield Sound.

“Narrated by Dwight Yoakam, the exhibit will explore the roots, heyday and impact of the Bakersfield Sound, the loud, stripped-down and radio-ready music most closely identified with the careers of Country Music Hall of Fame members Buck Owens and Merle Haggard” is how the Hall describes it.

I am really looking forward to this exhibit, and actually plan to make it the reason for my first visit to Country Music Hall of Fame.
