When it comes to the Grand Ole Opry and country music, the Q & A Lady is the first to admit she hasn’t seen and done it all. She’s equally quick, however, to add that she’s been lucky to see and do quite a little bit, and she’s happy to share her country insight with readers each week. She knows her Con Hunley from her John Conlee and her “Your Cheatin’ Heart” from her “Achy Breaky Heart.” If you have a question about country music you’d like to submit for her to consider answering, you’re welcome to do so here. Or you can just drop by each week to read her responses to other inquiries from across the country and around the globe. You just might learn a fun fact or two along the way.

I visited Nashville four years ago– went to the Hall of Fame. It was great, but was there another Country Music Hall of Fame building before this one? Is it still around?

Thanks from all of us for visiting Tune Town! You’re overdue for a return trip! Your memory serves you correctly. The first Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum building was located on Music Row and opened on April 1, 1967. It was razed around the time the new Hall of Fame and Museum building opened in downtown Nashville on May 17, 2001. While the new Hall building dwarfs the one built in 1967, it’s going to grow even more over the next couple of years. You’ll have to come check it out! Now if I can just get some more of my favorites inducted— Ronnie Milsap and Crystal Gayle, among them.
Thanks for asking,
The Q & A Lady
