New GRAMMY Museum to open in Cleveland, Mississippi

Plans to open a 20,000-plus square-foot GRAMMY Museum in Cleveland, Mississippi have been revealed. The GRAMMY Museum is planned to be the most technologically advanced music-themed museum in the world.

"Mississippi's influence can be heard everywhere," said project design team supervisor Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum in LA.  "The music born in Mississippi has shaped the development of music in America and beyond. The GRAMMY Museum Mississippi will help the rest of the world recognise Mississippi's contribution to American music culture."

"We've been honoured to showcase Mississippi's musical heritage for the last three years at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles," said Rita George, Deputy Director of the GRAMMY Museum Mississippi. "The artists who have participated in our Mississippi Nights during GRAMMY Week have perfectly highlighted the tremendous range of Mississippi's musical legacy. We are thrilled to continue to help demonstrate this talent in Cleveland."

GRAMMY Museum Mississippi will be housed on 4.5 acres at the south end of the Delta State University golf course along Highway 8. The GRAMMY Museum Mississippi Board of Directors also includes GRAMMY winners B.B. King, Marty Stuart, Eddie "Chank" Willis, and Cassandra Wilson, among others.
