Action News 5 reporteds that Memphis is being considered for the R&B Museum:
“The Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame wants to build their new museum in a city that’s influenced the history of R&B music.
Some of the exhibits would include the Blues Music Experience Center, which is dedicated to the music history of each city, and the Hall of Fame to honor inductees, like B. B. King.”

There are also some details at the Museum’s Facebook page here. The cover picture (and what you see in the image above) is a rendering of what the inside of the interactive museum might look like. You can also comment and tell them you want the museum in MEMPHIS!
The new museum would make a nice addition to a city already full of history and honors for its music. From Stax, to the Rock N’ Soul Museum, Graceland, and Sun Studios, there’s plenty of music history already on display. Meet Levon Williams, Stax historian in our video below:
