The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is holding its annual Ford Community Day with free admission on Saturday, Feb. 5, and organizers say it will be the most entertainment-packed community day yet. There will be performances from song writers Kent Blazy and Cory Batten and a capella group Street Corner Symphony. The group was a finalist on NBC’s hit show The Sing-Off. This is especially fun since one of Street Corner Symphony’s members, Richie Lister, works in the museum store.
The event also will feature the popular musical petting zoo, which allows children to get hands-on with a wide variety of musical instruments. Regular admission to the hall is $19.99 for adults and $11.95 for ages 6 to 17, so this is a substantial savings, especially with even more going on that day. Plus, all Ford Day attendees will have a chance to become museum members at a 20 percent discount for the year. That means an individual member ship, which is normally $40, will cost $32, and a $100 family membership will cost $80. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
