Hall of Fame: Free shows during CMA Musicfest

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will launch its new free series of performances by music stars, including a special appearance by country music legend Dolly Parton, during the upcoming CMA Music Festival June 11-14.

The new musical series is called “Live from the Museum Store” and will feature performances and autograph signings by artists such as Dierks Bentley, John Michael Montgomery, Jimmy Wayne and Darryl Worley. Events are free and will take place in the museum store and on the adjacent plaza. They are open to the public and do not require museum admission. Many programs will be recorded for broadcast on CMT or its radio network. The series will continue through the year and beyond, the museum says.

As a highlight of country music week, Hall of Fame member and Tennessee icon Dolly Parton will appear at the museum at 10 a.m. Monday, June 15, signing copies of her latest album, “Backwoods Barbie,” and her new children’s book, “I Am A Rainbow.”

While Parton has a home near Nashville and a studio and office off 12th Avenue South, she rarely makes public appearances in Nashville except to further her Imagination Library charity, bolster tourism and literacy initiatives in the state or support the Hall of Fame.

The CMT-sponsored performance and signing series includes:

• Wednesday, June 10

11:00 a.m., Dierks Bentley
1:30 p.m., Jimmy Wayne

• Thursday, June 11

10:00 a.m., John Michael Montgomery
2:30 p.m., Darryl Worley

• Monday, June 15

10:00 a.m., Dolly Parton
