Country superstar Jason Aldean is taking his career to a whole new level in 2017. With more than a decade of experience in the music business under his studded cowboy belt, the singer, known for such hits as "Dirt Road Anthem" and "Big Green Tractor," will be commemorated with an illustrious exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Opening May 26, Aldean's display (as with most of this sort) will contain items of personal significance, as well as career-defining articles with clear ties to his impact on country music.
“I am extremely honored to be invited to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” Aldean shares in a press statement Monday morning (Jan. 9) about his exhibit--which closes Nov. 5. “That building is filled with the artists who helped create and shape country music, so to be a part of that legacy is something I am very proud of.”
Aldean's career launched with his 2005 self-titled album, which featured such hits as "Hick Town" and "Amarillo Sky." Since then, he has released a string of six more studio albums, including 2016's They Don't Know, and collected a slew of chart-toppers. Subsequent notable radio hits include "She's Country," "Burnin' It Down," "My Kinda Party" and "Night Train," among many others.
This week, the Hall of Fame & Museum will be revealing one new exhibit per day to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Based on a hazy collage photo on their website, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Martina McBride and Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton & Sturgill Simpson could be next to get their own presentations in the iconic hall. Fans who take to social media and offer up their guesses (and RT and share) will be entered to win a lifetime membership to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a flyaway for two to attend the VIP opening of that day's announced exhibit.
