Brad Paisley Exhibit to Open at Country Music Hall of Fame
Brad Paisley is getting his very own showcase at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. On Nov. 18, the Nashville museum will open an exhibit highlighting the career of the one of country music's biggest stars.
Paisley's exhibit, which will run through May 14, 2017, will cover the entirety of Paisley's career, from his first performance on the renowned WWVA’s Jamboree USA when he was just 13 years old to the 18 No. 1 singles he's earned since entering the industry in 1999. Not only will the exhibition detail Paisley's 11 studio albums, 37 singles, 28 ACM and CMA honors and 15 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, it will also cover his nine years of hosting the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood and his life off the stage as well.
“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,” says museum CEO Kyle Young. “We’re thrilled to tell the story of this incredibly talented musician with our latest exhibition.”
The Paisley-themed exhibition will include musical instruments, performance clothing, manuscripts, awards, photographs, childhood mementos (including early examples of Paisley’s talent for drawings and illustrations) and other items that shed light on the singer's life and career. Artifacts will celebrate Paisley’s reputation as an inspired guitarist and illustrate his connections to many of his guitar heroes, including Chet Atkins, James Burton, John Jorgenson, Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and Don Rich of the Buckaroos.
