Award-winning country music artist Blake Shelton will be the focus of a career-spanning exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum called Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story. The exhibit opens to the public on May 27th.
“Blake Shelton is one of the most well-established contemporary artists in country music,” stated museum CEO Kyle Young. “Countless accolades into his musical career, he continues to stay true to his sound and musical style, and continues to receive recognition for it. We’re honored to host this exhibition and to share the story of this incredibly talented individual.”
“I came to Nashville in 1994, and I’ve always been fascinated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” Shelton reminisced. “I remember the first time I walked in there, I was blown away. To have my own exhibit is more than a dream come true, because I never dreamed it could happen! It’s crazy, is what it is. I couldn’t be more excited or more honored than to be a part of the museum.”
The displays will take fans through the star’s path to success, from his childhood in Oklahoma to his jump to Nashville as a teenager, and from his multi-platinum records to becoming a well-known celebrity thanks to his work as a coach on NBC’s The Voice. Blake’s unique story will be told through a showcase of an array of artifacts, including stage wear, instruments, song manuscripts, photos, and personal items.
