The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum closed its doors for the rest of the month, out of “an abundance of caution” relating to COVID-19. The museum, as well as its neighboring facilities Hatch Show Print and the CMA Theater, and tours of RCA Studio B on Music Row, will remain closed through March 31.
Museum CEO Kyle Young said in a press release: “The health and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority. While there have not been any confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) connected to the museum at this time, we must do all that we can to help ensure a safe and healthy environment for our visitors, employees and community, which at this time calls for us to close temporarily.” The museum says it “will continue to monitor and rely on the guidance from public health officials” as it makes decisions in the future.
The CMA Theater had three concerts scheduled this month. Shows from Rome & Duddy and Graham Nash are now postponed, while a March 21 concert from U.K. rockers Keane is canceled. Ticket holders will be notified of rescheduled dates, and refunds will be issued from the point of purchase for any canceled performances.
