Beginning in August, Reba fans will be able to experience a whole exhibit dedicated to the country star. Reba: All the Women I Am opens at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville on August 9th and runs through June 8, 2014. The exhibit is biographical look at her career spanning television, film, music, and Broadway.

“Reba is the most successful female country performer of her generation, and a major influence on many of the female recording artists who have followed her,” said Museum Director Kyle Young in a press statement.  “Her achievements and accolades are almost too numerous to mention:  She has sold more than 40 million records, charted nearly 60 Top Ten singles and 24 #1 hits, and been honored with nearly 50 major awards, including two Grammy awards, the Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year award and the Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year award; she is also one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.  And, of course, she was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011.

“It’s impossible to overstate Reba’s impact on country music, and her contributions go well beyond recording,” Young continued.  “She heightened production values for country concerts, adding elaborate stages, video screens and multiple costume changes.  Such innovations are now de rigueur on the tours of top country artists.  Furthermore, through her work on Broadway, in film, and as the star of two television comedies, Reba has helped to heighten and expand the profile of country music, lifting all boats in her magnificent wake.  We are looking forward to telling the rich, inspiring and always entertaining story of one of country music’s brightest lights.”
