Country Music Hall of Fame to Feature Alan Jackson Exhibit
A Country Music Hall of Fame’s exhibit honoring Alan Jackson will open on Aug. 29.
‘Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country’ will run at the Hall of Fame’s museum in Nashville through March 2015. Jackson will also serve as the museum’s next artist in residence, making him the first person to serve as an artist in residence while being the subject of an exhibit.
“This exhibit will be a rare treat for museum visitors,” Museum Director Kyle Young says. “Fans will recognize artifacts from milestone moments in Alan’s career, as well as items from his life away from the stage that are as personal as many of the songs he has penned over the years. This exhibit and his artist in residence shows this fall are not to be missed.”
Featured items in the display include items from the singer’s collection of ‘Mayberry’ memorabilia, the guitar he played at the CMA Awards when he debuted ‘Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),’ the Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the cover of ‘A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘Bout Love),’ handwritten manuscripts of some classic Jackson songs and more.
