Brad Paisley will be the subject of a career-spanning exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. Opening November 18th and running through May 14th, 2017, the exhibit will detail Paisley’s rise from a child prodigy who first performed at age 13 on the renowned WWVA’s Jamboree USA to one of America’s finest artists, songwriters, and guitarists.
The exhibition will include musical instruments, performance clothing, manuscripts, awards, photographs, childhood mementos (including early examples of Paisley’s talent for drawings and illustrations), and other items that shed light on Paisley’s life and career. Artifacts will celebrate Paisley’s reputation as an inspired guitarist, who blends technical mastery with whimsical imagination. Artifacts in the exhibit also will illustrate his connections to many of his guitar heroes, including Chet Atkins, James Burton, Little Jimmy Dickens, John Jorgenson, Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, and Don Rich of the Buckaroos.
