New exhibit “Western Edge” at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Rock and roll had lost its way — at least that’s what the 1960s musicians who are the subject of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum thought. “Western Edge: The Roots and Reverberations of Los Angeles Country-Rock” explores the LA-based community of singers, songwriters, and musicians who pioneered the sound of country-rock and made a lasting impact on popular music.
