The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is holding a Nudie Cohn exhibit through November of 2012 called “Silver Threads and Golden Needles: Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors.”

The exhibit traces Nudie’s journey across America from designing burlesque costumes in New York to opening his shop in North Hollywood. Gene Autry, Elton John, Gram Parsons, Elvis Presley, Roy Rogers and Hank Williams are among the  artists who wore Nudie’s designs.
