Rayna & Deacon Together Forever at Madame Tussauds Nashville

Image result for rayna and deacon madame tussauds

I cannot believe Rayna James died. I kept waiting for a “dream sequence”, it didn’t come. I was shocked to see her death as tears kept flowing and flowing.  Sad to see such a great love story die #Deyna. The show “Nashville” won’t be same without her.

“Nashville” premiered just three months after the kids and I moved to Nashville, and I have watched it since. I liked Rayna’s strong character and what she represented. RIP Rayna.

On the bright side, Rayna James and Deacon Claybourne from CMT’s “Nashville” will be in the Nashville Madame Tussauds when it opens this spring. The couple will be immortalized forever in wax outside a replica of the famous Bluebird Café within the incoming attraction. I can’t wait to check it out.

Rayna’s figure will be wearing an outfit donated from the show that she wore in season three while performing on “Good Morning America.” Deacon’s figure will be outfitted with his favorite Martin D-28 Marquis Sunburst guitar, a re-creation of his signature guitar pick and leather strap donning his name and clothes donated from the show.

Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.

Additional figures hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville include Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Minnie Pearl, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban and Little Jimmy Dickens. More figures will be added to the bill within the coming weeks.

Madame Tussauds Nashville – Coming Spring 2017

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds Nashville attraction is a new interactive wax experience where guests have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world’s biggest musical icons. Built to honor Music City and its deep roots into America’s history, Madame Tussauds will host visitors from across the globe as they enjoy a historical walk through America’s musical past and present with vivid scenes supporting the colorful cast of figures. Conveniently located within Opry Mills Mall, the star-studded attraction is set to open in the spring of 2017.

During the recent  63rd Annual Nashville Christmas Parade, Madame Tussauds unveiled a lively Minnie Pearl wax figure. Family members of the late “Hee Haw” star joined in the celebration atop of one of the brand new Gray Line Music City open-air buses. The Minnie Pearl figure will be featured in the Nashville Madame Tussauds attraction when it opens this spring.

Madame Tussauds

Minnie, whose given name was Sarah Cannon, was a country comedian and a fixture at the Grand Ole Opry for more than 50 years. Her dynamic figure captures her effervescent personality starting with her wide smile and iconic $1.98 price tag hanging from her floral hat, right down to her signature black Mary Jane shoes adorned with “Minnie” and “Pearl” written down the side. Her outfit is custom-made and inspired by her dress on display at the Grand Ole Opry Museum.minnie Pearl

Some fun facts about the figure:

  • Madame Tussauds consulted with the late singer’s family to select the figure’s expression to make sure it truly captures her likeness
  • Production of the figure took more than five months to complete
  • The Madame Tussauds artists visited the Opry Museum to measure the dress and hat to ensure they are an exact replica
  • Each individual hair is placed onto the figure to ensure life-like quality
  • There are 20 artists and sculptors with different specialties that work on each figure

Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and take more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.

With a completely different concept, the attraction in Nashville will be the company’s first offering in the US that focuses solely on music icons that have shaped America’s musical landscape. Guests are encouraged to have fun with the famous stars from musical genres such as Country, Rock n Roll, Jazz, Blues and Pop.

Additional figures hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville include Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Johnny Cash. More artists will be added to the bill within the coming weeks.
