Blake Shelton is the latest modern country star to earn his own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Following in the footsteps of Keith Urban, Luke Bryan and Eric Church, Shelton’s climb to stardom will be featured in “Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story.” Set to open May 27, the exhibit will feature instruments, clothing and other personal items from his life as a young struggling artist in Nashville to today.
“Blake Shelton is one of the most well-established contemporary artists in country music,” Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young said in a press release. “Countless accolades into his musical career, he continues to stay true to his sound and musical style and continues to receive recognition for it.”
The honor is a special one for Shelton, who credits the Hall of Fame as one of his favorite spots in the Music City.
“I came to Nashville in 1994, and I’ve always been fascinated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. I remember the first time I walked in there, I was blown away,” Shelton muses. “To have my own exhibit is more than a dream come true, because I never dreamed it could happen! It’s crazy is what it is. I couldn’t be more excited or more honored than to be a part of the museum.”
