The Country Music Hall of Fame’s Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s, opens next week, on May 25 for a three-year run.

Co-curated by museum staffers Peter Cooper, Michael Gray and Austin filmmaker Eric Geadelmann, the exhibit will honor the cultural exchange between Nashville and Austin, Texas, in the 1970s when country music’s outlaw movement was on the rise.

Artifacts on display will include the still where storyteller Tom T. Hall and the “bootleg preacher” Will D. Campbell made whiskey, the Randall knife that once belonged to Guy Clark’s father, paintings of Clark’s wife, Susanna Clark, the outfit worn by Joe Ely when he worked at a circus, photography by Leonard Kamsler and Marshall Fallwell Jr., the Gibson guitar played by Cowboy Jack Clement and the Armadillo art of Jim Franklin.
