We love that stage and event décor doesn’t need to rely on just traditional “soft goods” anymore. Nowadays, productions, ceremonies, special events, and concert tours utilize all kinds of fabrics, substrates, textures, colors, and styles to help create their own unique and memorable looks. Recently we were pleased to work with Alex Krompic, the creative and multi-talented Manager of Production Services at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. He needed some spectacular drapes for their star-studded Medallion Ceremony for this year’s truly exceptional inductions into the Country Music Hall of Fame—country music’s highest honor–and we knew that we could help with some of our alluring drapes from our Specialty Rental Drapery Collections.

With universally beloved troubadours and song-writers Alan Jackson, Don Schlitz, and Jerry Reed being inducted, Alex knew that they wanted a remarkable backdrop for their stage. They needed it to look fabulous behind the various country-music dignitaries that would be paying tribute to the inductees, which they knew would cross multiple generations, backgrounds, and styles. (Special surprise guests included fellow Hall of Fame members, who “welcomed the new inductees to their exclusive club”: Bill Anderson; Bobby Bare; Bobby Braddock; Harold Bradley; Charlie Daniels; Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers; Fred Foster; Vince Gill; Kris Kristofferson; Loretta Lynn; Charlie McCoy; Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban of the Oak Ridge Boys; Randy Owen of Alabama; Connie Smith; George Strait; and Randy Travis.)

With lighting and staging masterfully designed by Alex himself, he ended up choosing a Metal Mesh Backdrop from our Industrial Textures Collection for this important event, which helped give it a classically edgy appeal that they knew would help showcase just how special these inductees really are. You can see with these amazing photos taken by photographer Mike Boyle what an unbelievable job Alex did with the lighting and stage design for this heartfelt affair.

Light them up with theatrical stage lighting, or even just pop a natural-hued spot light on them, and these metal mesh drapes are always a sure-fire way to wow the crowd! Lightweight, easy to hang, and extremely versatile, the variety of drapes in our Industrial Textures Collection are always a fun way to design your stage, for any-and-all types of special events. We were thrilled with how amazing our drapes looked, and honored to be a part of such a prestigious ceremony.
