The Rolling Stones Exhibit, delivered by DHL, the band’s first ever major exhibition, announced that due to popular demand, it is extending its successful run at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum (401 Gay Street) in downtown Nashville, Tenn. The Exhibit, previously scheduled until June 30th, will now run until Sunday, August 26th before heading to Sydney, Australia. This is the last chance for fans to see The Rolling Stones Exhibit in North America.
Artists Share How the Rolling Stones Influenced
We spoke to artists who have been influenced by the Stones like Kallie Shore, 2 Steel Girls, Gavin Kennedy, Shane Owens, John Berry, and Jeffy Coffey. Read below to see what they had to say.
“The Rolling Stones have had such an influence on us as performers. There is absolutely no one like Mick Jagger on stage. He let’s go and completely enjoys what he does. The Rolling Stones light up and super charge their atmosphere. They’re electric! We continue to learn so very much from them. Mick has inspired us to let go and have the time of our lives at every show we perform. The Rolling Stones are 100%, legends!” says 2Steel Girls.
“To me, The Rolling Stones epitomize the timeless humanity of music. I was fortunate enough to see Mick Jagger perform at the Grammys in 2011, and the music is not only an everlasting collection but truly gets better with age. I know the exhibit will be in the best of care with Joe and Linda Chambers at the Musicians Hall of Fame and I can’t wait to see the amazing history we’re lucky enough to host in Nashville!” said Gavin Kennedy.
“I’ve always been such a fan of the Stones. I write and perform country music, but rock and roll has such a special place in my heart. They have always had this bluesy edge to their music that is often seen in country as well and you can hear the influence of Mick Jagger in everyone from Matchbox Twenty to Maren Morris. The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock bands of all time and I try to channel that signature Stones attitude in my songwriting and performing as much as I can.” said Kalie Shorr.
“To me, The Rolling Stones represents the rawness of what Rock n Roll is all about”
said Jeff Coffey, former lead singer for Chicago.
“I’ve always liked The Rolling Stones. I think their music has influenced a lot of people no matter what genre you love. Not only do they have great songs their musicianship is second to none. One of the best rock n roll groups of all time,” said Shane Owens.“ The Stones were rockin’ America as I grew up, and are still today. As an artist, I got from them that you put out there what you best, just simply do what you do and that came through in the music. I try and remember that when I am performing, be myself, do what I do best.”
