Additional Details Announced for Luke Bryan’s Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
The Country Music Hall of Fame is preparing their Luke Bryan exhibit, and they have released details about what fans can expect to see at at the museum and when.
The Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary exhibit is set to open on May 22 and run through Nov. 8 at the Hall of Fame's museum in Nashville. The temporary exhibit will take fans through Bryan's life, from his Georgia roots to his rise within the music industry to become the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year.
“I remember bringing my parents to visit the museum and dreaming of something like this one day," Bryan says in a press release. "Now to have an exhibit about my life that my family, friends and fans can come and see is just so cool."
When the exhibit was announced earlier this year, Bryan noted that he was particularly excited to be able to take his two sons, Bo and Tate, to see it.
“My kids are, I think, just starting to understand what dad does, and I think to be able to take your 6-year-old and your 4-year-old and show them an exhibit ... is so unbelievably cool and amazing,” he said at the time. “It is something that just five, six years ago, I walked Broadway, and I walked these bars and these streets, dreaming of being in this situation one day ..."
Fans will learn more about Bryan's life and career through his stage clothes, instruments, photos, awards and other personal memorabilia from his personal collection.
"In one of Luke Bryan's songs he says: 'If you want to know the real me / Just turn the page in my dirt road diary.' In this exhibition, Luke is an open book, sharing insights into his life and music with museum visitors," says Museum Director Kyle Young. "He joins Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert in the list of contemporary artists featured in special summer exhibits that look at country music stardom in the 21st century."
In addition to the exhibit, Bryan is prepping to co-host the 50th ACM Awards with Blake Shelton on April 19. And, his 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour begins on May 8 in Grand Forks, S.D., with special guest Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett joining him on select dates.
