LIGHT UP THE NIGHT “T o say our event was perfection is probably an understatement! We could not have been happier with everything! Our Event Services Manager was amazing and saw to every last detail – even finding a pair of ballet flats for me when my shoes turned out to be less than comfortable. She’s a true pro! Of course we loved the facility and our guests were just in awe. Our guest of honor, Patsy, was pretty much blown away by the entire event! We did run quite a bit behind schedule and truly appreciate that everyone stayed late for us to get through. Our company doesn’t do a lot of events to the magnitude of this one but we will for sure use the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum again for other events, big or small. - Karen Z. Dugan, North America Administrators
