The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is offering free admission next Sunday, thanks to the museum’s annual partnership with the Ford Motor Company Fund

Dec. 15 will be the 11th Ford Community Day, with free admission from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  as a way to say “thank you” to the Middle Tennessee community and to reward lucky out-of-town visitors.

Tours of Hatch Show Print and Historic RCA Studio B will also be free on a first-come, first-served basis.

The day will be filled with performances, a songwriter session, extra family events, including Santa photos, and a chance to purchase discounted annual memberships to the museum.

Highlights include a performance by singer-songwriter and Warner Music Nashville recording artist Ingrid Andress, whose singles include “More Hearts Than Mine” and “Lady Like,” a songwriter session with Kelly Archer, and a musician spotlight with Fats Kaplin.

Family programs include a drop-in Hatch Show Print Letterpress art activity, a Learn to Line Dance session, the museum’s Musical Petting Zoo, a beginner Ukelele workshop, and a DeFord Bailey DIY Harmonicas session.
