The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville


The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, has doubled in size, but sill had no trouble packing the house as it celebrated the completion of its $100-million expansion plan.  Vince Gill was on hand to help out among hundreds who assembled in the museum's new Event Hall.  "I came here for the first time 40 years ago," Gill said, "and none of this stuff was here then.  I was a typical musician, I came here chasing a girl, and fell in love with this place.  Ricky Skaggs was also on hand to help out, and he drew from his own travels to talk about Nashville.  "You know, there are a lot of great cities in the world.  I've been to a bunch of them, but there's only one that can call itself Music City."
