Brad Paisley will be getting his own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville this fall.
The exhibit will feature musical instruments, photographs, clothing, drawings, and awards that span Paisley’s career from his childhood, where he first performed at the age of 13, to today.
“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,” said Museum CEO Kyle Young in a prepared statement. “We’re thrilled to tell the story of this incredibly talented musician with our latest exhibition.”
Paisley has won three Grammy awards and has amassed quite a collection of both Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Awards. His debut album, Who Needs Pictures, was released in 1999 and spawned two No. 1 hits, “He Didn’t Have to Be,” and “We Danced.”
Over his career, Paisley has written 20 of his 23 No. 1 hits, including “Online,” “Ticks,” “The World,” and “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song).”
The exhibit opens November 18.
