Luke Bryan to Be Featured in Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
During his 2015 tour announcement press conference, Bryan revealed that he will be the subject of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, running from May through November of this year.
“This contemporary exhibit series plugs straight into our mission to tell the ongoing history of country music. From spring to fall, as our numbers swell with school groups, families and younger fans, we've included in our educational mix a series of feature exhibits focused on the careers of today’s most interesting superstars,” says Kyle Young, the museum's director. “As with our past summer exhibitions ... we know fans are going to enjoy this examination of Luke’s career."
The singer says that he, his team and the museum are already brainstorming the exhibit, through which they want to "tell the story, tell how you move up to Nashville chasing dreams, meet some songwriters ... " and the rest, for Bryan, is history.
"We're excited to tell that story," he adds, "and we will take it very seriously and try to make a really fun fan-interactive experience."
In addition to it being a career milestone, this exhibit is also a personal victory of sorts, as Bryan will be able to share this special exhibit with his two children.
"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 says. "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 ...
"Being in this room and being all through the halls of this place ... and now that family and friends and fans of mine can come to town and see an exhibit of mine is just truly, truly [amazing]," Bryan adds. "I'd love to be able to tell my story in that light."
