OUTLAWS & ARMADILLOS EXHIBIT OPENS MAY 2018 The Outlaw phenomenon greatly enlarged country music’s audience in the 1970s. Led by pacesetters such as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Bobby Bare, artists in Nashville and Austin demanded the creative freedom to make their own country music, different from the pop-oriented sound that prevailed at the time. The major exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Outlaws and Armadillos, examines the 1970s cultures of corporate-leaning Nashville and fiercely independent Austin, and the complicated, surprising relationships between the two.
