The floor of the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum captivates the eye. Cross-sawn parquet tiles capture the wood grain from an unexpected angle—seeing the growth rings gives us a sense of the hardships the trees endured before becoming part of the floor.
Makes sense. Country music is all about experience, regret, and memory.
