    Features Artifacts from Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Many More
 
NASHVILLE,
Tennessee — The largest privately-owned collection of Dolly Parton
stagewear and memorabilia is just one of the exciting exhibits awaiting
visitors to the 2013 Country Music Association’s CMA Music Festival
2013, set for June 6-9 in Nashville, TN.

The
exhibit will be staged by Rockology LLC, one of the entertainment
industry’s leading authorities on the collection, appraisal, brokerage
and exhibition of music and pop-culture memorabilia. Rockology has been
commissioned to serve as the Master Curator for CMA’s AT&T U-Verse
Fan Fair X, located
in Nashville’s new Music City Convention Center which will greet the
estimated 300,000 die-hard fans from 50 states and 41 countries.


The Parton collection will feature stage wear dating from the early
part of her career to current, along with clothing worn on album covers,
personal items and an elaborate king-sized bed.  The clothing will be
worn by custom-made Dolly Parton mannequins that “include her most
famous assets,” said Rockology President Stephen Shutts. “This
collection is so impressive that Dolly herself has even visited the
collector’s home to see it.”

Also key to the FFX exhibit are items from contemporary Country Stars
Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Carrie
Underwood, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and more.  Vintage Corvettes
belonging to Steve Wariner and also Kix Brooks will be displayed.  Also
featured will be paintings by Wariner and photography from Ronnie Dunn.

Intriguing interactive exhibits will include a guitar-luthier workshop
as well as an exhibit featuring custom-designed leather  items  from
Ethos Custom Brands, during which fans will be allowed to watch the
intricate design, patterning, hand-tooling and finishing of
guitar-straps, cuffs and boots similar to that which their favorite
stars wear.

“These items show that there’s more to these stars than simply the
music,” says Shutts.  “They are real people with real lives who share
common interests with their fans.  It’s a terrific way to connect with
their audience. We’re excited to share some of our most unique
memorabilia and artifacts to those who will appreciate them the most. ”

In addition to countless exhibitions over the past 15 years in large
fairs, festivals, hotels, casinos and other venues, Rockology’s
memorabilia exhibits have been featured in recent years with Rascal
Flatts ’“Flatts Fest” and Brooks & Dunn’s “Neon Circus Tour.”
Shutts, an esteemed member of the music and pop-culture memorabilia
community, was the driving force behind the $1 million sale of Elvis
Presley’s Audubon Drive home, as well as Elvis’ beloved Memphis roller
coaster The Zippin Pippin.

Shutts and Robert Reynolds (Grammy-winning founder of country
super-group The Mavericks) will star as the undisputed kings of music
memorabilia in their CMT reality show, Raiders of Rock. With the first
10 episodes already produced and scheduled for a summer debut, Raiders
of Rock features the duo traveling across the country in search of (and
bargaining for) rare and unusual pieces of music and pop culture
memorabilia.
