If you’re going to attend the opening of an exhibit dedicated to you, you better look good. That’s what Martina McBride did earlier this week. Actually, she looked better than good – she was stunning.
On Tuesday, July 27, the country music star was on hand for the unveiling of the new exhibit, “Martina McBride: The Power of Her Voice,” at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. After visiting the exhibit, the “Independence Day” singer took to social media to share her feelings about receiving such an honor.
Unsurprisingly, McBride was very happy to have an exhibit about her included in the popular museum.
“Last night I was so honored and a bit overwhelmed to see my very own exhibit in the @countrymusichof. It’s something I’ve dreamed of for a long time and being surrounded by so many people who played a part in helping me get here was so special,” the country music star posted to Twitter.
McBride was also grateful to be recognized by the exhibit.
“Thank you to the Hall of Fame for the beautiful and moving exhibit highlighting my life from my childhood in Kansas to the career I am so proud of. Please make plans to visit and see my exhibit. It will be up through August 2022. … @GettyImages for @countrymusichof,” Martina McBride also shared.
Martina McBride Exhibit Opens July 30
It features many important moments from the “Concrete Angel” singer’s decades-long career. Included in the exhibit is an outfit she wore when performing when she was just 7 years old. As a child, she was part of her family’s band, “The Schiffters.” The band name was derived from her family’s name, which is Schiff.
Another piece of memorabilia on display is the dress she wore when she performed at the CMA Awards for the very first time. Interestingly, this was a maternity dress. McBride was seven months pregnant at the time. There is also her famous “Tomato” T-shirt and a quilt her grandmother made on display.
Martina McBride wasn’t the only person excited about her Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit. Singer and songwriter Gretchen Peters is also very happy to see the exhibit at the museum. She shared her feeling on Twitter.
“SO proud to be included in this new exhibit at @countrymusichof illuminating the career of the mighty @martinamcbride . Not only is she a great artist, but also someone who has stood up for women since the very beginning of her career, and has never wavered. Congratulations M,” Peters shared.
