Brad Paisley has been tapped as the latest modern country artist to be honored with an exhibit celebrating his career at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Later this year, fans of the “Country Nation” singer will be able to see instruments, awards, personal photographs and mementos from throughout his life on display. The exhibit will tell the story of how artists like Chet Atkins and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones inspired him to master the guitar.

“There are many who pick up a guitar at a young age with the hope of turning it into a career someday. There are few who stick with it and even fewer who go on to become an award-winning artist such as Brad Paisley,” Museum CEO Kyle Young said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to tell the story of this incredibly talented musician with our latest exhibition.”

Previous artists honored with similar limited engagement exhibits include Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw.

Paisley’s exhibit will open Nov. 18 and will run through May 14, 2017. This fall, you can catch him performing free shows on various college campuses for his second annual 2016 Country Nation College Tour.
