Jason Aldean is getting his own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville this May.
The career of the current ACM Entertainer of the Year will be part of the Hall’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Opening May 26, the exhibit will be available to the public until Nov. 5.
A museum archivist has spent the past few months cataloging memorabilia from Aldean’s career for the exhibit. In order to build up the catalog, Aldean welcomed the archivist into his own home.
The exhibit will follow the My Kinda Party singer’s move from his native Georgia to Nashville while touching on key points in Aldean’s career. One of the modern icons of country music, the exhibit will also look at Aldean’s impact on the genre.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Aldean touched on both his and his peers’ perceived impact on modern country music. “I think when you have guys like me, and Luke [Bryan] and Miranda [Lambert] and Eric [Church], we’ve been the group that is going to influence the next generation…”
Aldean’s exhibit is the first of many to coincide with Hall of Fame’s 50th Anniversary celebration. The Country Music Hall of Fame plans to unveil its entire slate of exhibits once a day this week.
