At the Country Music Hall of Fame, you can meet up with Kye Fleming, legendary country songwriter, as she visits the museum on Saturday, July 28. Fleming will be signing autographs of her custom-made Hatch Show Print poster, as well as answering questions in a special interview. The program begins at 1:30 p.m.
Kye Fleming has written number one hits for artists like Ronnie Milsap, Michael Johnson, Barbara Mandrell and Steve Wariner. She has also, over the years, become a song publisher and a mentor to young songwriters and artists. You may recognize her lyrics in “Smoky Mountain Rain,” “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It for the World” and “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool,” and now you can come face-to-face with the legend herself.
Fleming is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and is a three-time Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Country Songwriter of the Year winner. BMI President and CEO Del Bryant says about her, “[she] is a rarity, a bridge between traditional and modern country music and a creative force who helped expand Nashville’s reach.”
The “Poets and Prophets” interview will take place and will feature vintage photos, film footage and recordings from Fleming’s past. Afterward, she will be present to sign posters commemorating the event and taking photographs. You can purchase the Hatch Show Print poster at the Museum Store. A museum ticket is needed to receive a pass into the event, which can be picked up two hours ahead of time at the museum.
