The purchase of archival quality rehousing supplies for the 6,190 large-format still image portraits retained in the Fabry collection that document approximately 600 country music artists and changes in their instruments and costumes from the 1940s to 1960s. The Fabry photographs capture the development of artists over time, revealing and documenting cultural changes in make-up, hairstyles, and positioning indicative of the powerful marketing and promotional tools typical of the entertainment industry. The images provide a glimpse into major celebrities such as Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and Roy Orbison, as well as lesser-known artists. The corpus is used in research, education, publications, and documentaries.

The Country Music Foundation, Inc. requests a Preservation Assistance Grant to fund the purchase of preservation supplies needed to rehouse a collection of large format negatives in the photo collection. The Fabry Collection is a collection of images taken by photographer Walden S. Fabry, who ran a photo studio in Nashville that catered to country music artists during the late 1940s through the early 1960s.

The assessment and digitization of 4,500 hours of audio recordings that trace the history and development of country and American vernacular music.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (CMHFM) seeks support through the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program to assess the contents of its quarter-inch audio tape collection, and to digitize and make publicly accessible 4,500 hours of rare, fragile, and valuable recordings from this collection. This audio tape digitization project builds on the Museum's successful digitization of acetate transcription discs, complementing that collection with new commercial, demo, broadcast, and performance recordings that trace the history and evolution of country and American vernacular music. This pilot project will assess the full audio tape collection of 21,632 quarter-inch reels and digitize nearly 10% of the collection for preservation and public access. The project will also make a significant selection of previously-unavailable recordings accessible for humanities research through digital access and cataloging and finding aids.

Once transferred, the original source materials from this project will be stored according to best practices for conservation in climate-controlled vaults currently under construction. Three collections have been selected by as the first and most urgent collections for digitization based on their rarity, fragility, number of access requests, and historical importance: Bob Pinson Recorded Sound Collection--Rare and unique acetate and vinyl transcriptions discs; Moving Image Collection--Bobby Bare and Friends; and Photo Collection--Fabry Image Collection.
