Taylor Swift, Faith Hill + More Featured in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Exhibit
Taylor Swift, Faith Hill and Loretta Lynn are all part of an exciting new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio: 'Women Who Rock -- Vision, Passion, Power.' The exhibit, which opens to the general public on May 13, will run through Feb. 26, 2012.
Each artist was asked to contribute personal artifacts from their career, things that mean something special to them. Swift donated an Ovation 1755 Custom Balladeer 12-string guitar, the gold glitter dress she wore with Def Leppard for CMT's 'Crossroads' and handwritten lyrics to her song 'Change.'
Hill lent an outfit made for her by Versace that she wore in 2000 on her CBS Thanksgiving special.
Lynn donated three album covers: 'Here's Loretta Lynn,' 'Coal Miner's Daughter' and 'Don't Come Home a Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind).' The country legend also sent the pink gown she wore in her music video for 'Portland, Oregon,' which will sit beside her Epiphone acoustic guitar.
Fans in attendance will see videos, memorabilia and more from some of their favorite female musicians, plus they can also visit a recording booth and tell their stories of how the lives of these music stars have influenced them today.
Another special bit of history in the exhibit will be a telegram that Dusty Springfield sent to 'I'm Sorry' singer Brenda Lee in 1964. Lee also donated a black lace dress she wore in the early '60s and a book of paper dolls that she was featured in.
