Country Music Hall of Fame Sets Dates for Luke Bryan Exhibit
CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is locked in for an 'appearance' at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The superstar's exhibit — initially announced in January — will run from May 22 to Nov. 8. Titled 'Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary,' the featured placement will examine the singer-songwriter's background, chronicle his rise to fame and document his impressive career success.
From his early days as the son of a peanut farmer in Georgia to his bold move to Nashville, the exhibit will explore the moments that made Bryan into one of the most decorated country stars of his day. Fans will be able to see some of his instruments, clothes, photos, awards and other personal memorabilia.
Since starting his music career in the mid-2000s, Bryan has quickly established himself as one of the most successful and driven singers in the genre.
"I remember bringing my parents to visit the museum and dreaming of something like this one day," the singer says via 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."
"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,'" museum director Kyle Young explains. The exhibit was created with this theme in mind. "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 twenty-first century."

After wrapping his final Spring Break shows in Florida, in conjunction with his latest EP Spring Break ... Checkin' Out, Bryan will co-host the 2015 ACM Awards with Blake Shelton. That event is set for Sunday, April 19.
