Through text and artifacts, multiple theater experiences, film and sound, and interactive displays, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum shares the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, explores how evolving sound technology shaped their success, and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music.
The Way We Worked explores how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments over the past 150 years. Visitors can also explore the local and regional history of work in a supplementary display created by the Birthplace of Country Music curatorial team.
