Michael McCall is a journalist and author who has written about country music and popular entertainment for more than 30 years and since 2005 has been the country album reviewer for the Associated Press. In 2006, he became the staff writer/editor at the Country Music Hall of Fall of Fame and Museum, where his duties include curating exhibits, conducting historical research and hosting public programs.

Davis and McCall will discuss the photography of Walden S. Fabry and Elmer Williams, including how the museum acquired their collections and the archival process that has gone into digitizing and preserving them. The two curators will also talk about featured photographers Les Leverett, Raeanne Rubenstein, and David McClister, the Nashville music scene since the 1940s and the influence of southern California on the sound and image of country music.
