Since the 1970s, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum has been involved in the reissue of classic recordings. Functioning as a producer and packager, the Museum has worked on more than one hundred historical sets. Many of these were compiled for release on major record labels, including such high profile CD boxes as The Patsy Cline Collection, The Complete Hank Williams, and From Where I Stand: The Black Experience in Country Music. Since 1985, CMF Records has issued its own recordings as well, focusing on significant tracks that have been overlooked by commercial recording companies. These include classic performances by such legendary artists as Hank Williams, Webb Pierce, Jimmy Martin, and Johnny Paycheck.
Hall of Fame produced recordings have been nominated for numerous awards including seven Grammys. The Complete Hank Williams won two 1998 Grammys: Best Historical Album and Best Boxed Recording Package. Night Train to Nashville: Music City Rhythm & Blues, 1945-1970 won the 2004 Grammy for Best Historical Album. Backed by the extensive archives of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, each CMF album features informative liner notes, rare photographs, and painstakingly remastered sound.
