The installation brings fans back to Jason’s humble Macon, Georgia roots, showcases the encouragement he received from both parents, his move to Nashville, his struggle to get his music heard, and his groundbreaking success with an independent record company.
As fans well know, the artist’s music celebrates life in the South and has had significant impact on the current country music scene. The exhibit will also breakdown the emergence of RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time’s wide-open sound, which is one of the defining elements in today’s country music.
“I am extremely honored to be invited to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” Aldean shared in a statement. “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.”
On Thursday, Aldean was on hand at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to preview his display.
“To think this all started by me playing guitar in my bedroom just because I wanted to learn to play guitar with my dad and my uncle … it’s sort of turned into this amazing career that is now on display here,” he shared with Rolling Stone Country at the event. “I don’t know, it kind of blows me away.”
Even longtime Jason Aldean fans can learn something new from the exhibit and enjoy seeing the hallmarks of Jason’s rise to fame.
“I hope they get a chance to go back and see the full story, from my teenage days and high-school days when sports was really my main thing and the sort of transition to becoming a musician and playing in bands,” he explained to the outlet. “Sort of how that ended up becoming the rest of this whole display.”
