Since the pandemic started, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has lost an estimated $35 million in revenue. To help raise money, the staff came up with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity called Big Night at the Museum. More than a dozen artists were given the opportunity to play an instrument originally owned by one of their heroes, to cover a song of their choice. It's very rare that these priceless and delicate instruments are taken out of their cases. Big Night at the Museum premieres on YouTube on Wednesday night at 9pm. It's free to watch, but donations to the Hall of Fame are encouraged.
