Dierks Bentley Exhibit Coming to Country Music Hall of Fame
Dierks Bentley fans, start planning your visits to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The singer-songwriter is the latest in a string of contemporary country artists to earn an exhibit at the Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory is set to open on March 4 and run through Sept. 6, according to the Tennessean. The exhibit will feature Bentley's stage clothes, handwritten lyrics, guitars, pictures and much more, all from his personal collection.
“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway," Bentley says in a statement. "I’m going to have to go down there to see it for myself to really make it sink in."
The artist will have an opportunity to do just that on March 12, during an event to celebrate the exhibit's opening. More information about that event and the exhibit as a whole is available on the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum website. Other contemporary artist who have earned exhibits at the Country Music Hall of Fame include Keith Urban (Keith Urban So Far, open until May), Eric Church (Eric Church: Inside the Outsider, open through February), Luke Bryan and Trisha Yearwood.
Bentley will be a busy guy in 2016: He recently released a new song, “Somewhere on a Beach,” also his very first single from his upcoming new album, Black, and has announced a summer tour, which will kick off in May.
