The Congress of Country Music is moving forward. Construction is continuing this week as part of 3 phases. The first phase is the Ellis Theater, then the Museum, and the Marty Stuart Center which is an education facility. When all is finished these venues will house concerts, live productions, country music memorabilia, and learning opportunities for students. The center is already endorsed by the Grammy Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and the Library of Congress.
