Discover the Stories Behind Session Musicians, Engineers and Producers

Each exhibit tells the story of a musician that you may have heard but may have never seen. The Musicians Hall of Fame is a premiere Nashville attraction and the one and only museum in the world that honors the talented musicians who actually played on the greatest recordings of all time.

Instruments and Memorabilia

It’s possible to spend days in the museum because there is so much to see. Here’s a small taste:

  • Elvis Presley’s studio where he recorded his biggest records such as Suspicious Minds, In the Ghetto and more.
  • Glen Campbell’s guitars that he played on his nationally broadcast TV show and as a session musician in the early 60’s.
  • One of Jimi Hendrix’s Stratocaster guitar’s and the stage he performed on in Nashville.
  • James Jamerson’s actual Fender P-Bass.
  • Steve Lukather’s original Les Paul guitar given to him by his father.
  • Instruments used by Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Elton John and so much more.

Every Genre of Music

Inductees have included such well-known musical stars as Chet Atkins, Charlie Daniels, Barbara Mandrell, Roy Orbison, Garth Brooks and Peter Frampton.

The museum has also recognized such “unknown” or “behind-the-scenes” stars as the Nashville A-Team, the Wrecking Crew, The Tennessee Two, The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the G-Men (Garth Brooks’ studio musicians) and the studio musicians from Sigma Sound Studio in Philadelphia.
