The roots of country music are showing
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Word that bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs' Gibson RB-Granada Mastertone banjo is heading to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum here gives all the more reason to visit the shrine. On a recent Saturday morning, the line already was forming in the lobby of the downtown hall. The permanent exhibition, "Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music," traces the history of country from its pre-commercial roots on porches of Appalachia to the Hollywood glitz of today.
