The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will open an exhibit celebrating Alan Jackson’s 25 years in country music on August 29. The Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country exhibit will run through March 2015. Jackson will also serve as the Museum’s next artist in residence, making him the first ever to serve in that capacity while also being the subject of an exhibit.
“This exhibit will be a rare treat for museum visitors,” Museum Director Kyle Young said. “Fans will recognize artifacts from milestone moments in Alan’s career, as well as items from his life away from the stage that are as personal as many of the songs he has penned over the years. This exhibit and his artist-in-residence shows this fall are not to be missed.”
Featured displays include items from Jackson’s collection of Mayberry memorabilia, the guitar he played at the CMA Awards when he debuted “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” the Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the cover of his A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘Bout Love) album, handwritten manuscripts of some of his hit songs and much more.
