NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After construction of the Music City Convention Center forced the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum to move, it's set to reopen with more to share with the public.

If the walls of the Musicians Hall of the Fame and Museum (MHOF) could talk, they'd probably just sing!

"As long as there is music, it will always be relevant. Like I said, we are not genre driven, we're just musician driven, "said MHOF founder Joe Chambers.

For the first time in three years, the museum reopens to the public in downtown Nashville.

"So many musicians from other cities have moved here over the years. Nashville's probably, the last really big recording center more so than New York or LA," said Chambers.

The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum now makes its home in the historic Municipal Auditorium's basement after change and growth in Nashville came to its previous location.

"The Music City Center, which is now open, we just had the address that happens to be in the middle of it and we had to move," said the founder.

Chambers said the move has allowed them to grow as well, "It's just about musicians of all genres. We're not country music, we're not about rock music, we're really about the musicians."

To make sure everything is ready, dozens of volunteers were hard at work.

Exhibits showcase musicians who have worked for Elvis Presley, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire and record labels like: Capital, Stax and Sun Studios in Memphis.

The MHOF opens to the public Thursday, August 29 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
