The museum, located in Nashville, has a tradition of featuring country artists still relatively young in the industry. It currently features exhibits on Keith Urban and Dierks Bentley.
The exhibit promises a career-spanning look at Shelton, starting with his move from Oklahoma to Nashville when he was a teenager, through his country music debut and now his time as a coach on NBC’s The Voice.
On the webpage announcing the exhibit, Shelton stated, “I came to Nashville in 1994, and I’ve always been fascinated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. I remember the first time I walked in there, I was blown away. To have my own exhibit is more than a dream come true, because I never dreamed it could happen! It’s crazy, is what it is. I couldn’t be more excited or more honored than to be a part of the museum.”
In the meantime, Shelton is back in the studio working on his next album, his next single “Came Here To Forget” is expected next week.
