The reigning CMA Entertainer Of The Year is not showing any signs of slowing down. Coming off the heels of last week’s Spring Break…Checkin’ Out album release Luke Bryan is set to join Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert as the newest contemporary country artist to have an exhibit in the Country Music Hall Of Fame and Museum.
Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary will run from May 22 through November 8. The exhibit will take a look at the singer/songwriter’s roots and rise. Focusing on the the venerable successes of 2014 fans will follow Luke from his early co-writing days to selling millions of records to becoming a country icon.
The Georgia native had a good run of songwriting credits under his belt, including Travis Tritt’s “My Honky Tonk History” and Billy Currington’s “Good Directions”, before penning his own debut single “All My Friends Say” which appeared on the studio album I”ll Stay Me. Since then Luke has garnered 12 #1 singles and latest album Crash My Party has landed six consecutive #1 songs for the CMA and ACM awarded Entertainer Of The Year.
“I remember bringing my parents to visit the museum and dreaming of something like this”, says Bryan. “Now to have an exhibit about my life that my family, friends, and fans can come and see is just so cool.”
