As a global destination that traditionally welcomes 1.3 million visitors each year, the coronavirus pandemic has overwhelming financial implications for the nonprofit Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Closed from March 13 to September 10, the Museum has lost over $25 million in revenue, laid off or furloughed 174 hardworking employees, placed most of its exhibition schedule on hiatus, and cancelled in-person educational programming.

Your much-needed gift to the Coronavirus Relief Fund will sustain the Museum and our uniquely American musical heritage now and into the future.
