Hologram USA will debut a hologram of Tammy Wynette, as well as a stage show to debut in Nashville in 2016. Wynette’s hologram is being developed in partnership with The Bicycle Music Company, which manages her rights. A venue has not yet been announced for the stage show, which will also be distributed by streaming TV company FilmOn.
“It’s an honor to celebrate America’s musical heritage by introducing the artistry of Tammy Wynette to new audiences,” said Hologram USA CEO Alki David. “We are creating a full-length show involving both songs and stories from her life and truly authentic performances.”
Wynette, who died in 1998, notched dozens of hits including her signature tune “Stand By Your Man,” “Til I Get It Right,” “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” and duets with George Jones including “Golden Ring” and “We’re Gonna Hold On.”
Hologram USA is also working on a Patsy Cline hologram, also set for debut in 2016. Other celebrity holograms created by Hologram USA include Whitney Houston, Buddy Holly, Liberace, Redd Foxx and more.
Additionally, Hologram USA will be involved in tonight’s (Nov. 4) Jimmy Kimmel Live!, when the talk show host’s monologue is beamed from a soundstage in Hollywood to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Later in the show, The Band Perry will perform on the stage inside the Country Music Hall of Fame, but will be shown through a hologram on Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s outdoor stage.
Hologram USA’s involvement with country music began with the first hologram appearance by Kimmel in conjunction with the 2014 CMA Awards with Kacey Musgraves and Florida Georgia Line.
