Jason Aldean’s First Horse, First Guitar to Be Featured in Hall of Fame Exhibit
Fans of Jason Aldean will get an up close and personal look at the star’s life and career in one of the Country Music Hall of Fame’s newest exhibits, Jason Aldean: Asphalt Cowboy.
Asphalt Cowboy will be display at the Nashville venue from May 26 through Nov. 5. The title comes from a song of the same name that appeared on Aldean’s 2005 self-titled debut album.
The museum exhibit will spotlight numerous elements of the superstar’s expansive career, from his move to Nashville to his current multi-platinum success. Many important mementos from his music career will be showcased including, the cover letter of his contract with Broken Bow Records, the shirt he wore in the “Johnny Cash” music video and even a personal note he received from Jay Leno before a performance on the Tonight Show.

Fans also have the chance to see some of Aldean’s personal items, like a personalized wooden rocking horse from his childhood, his high school graduation photo and his first guitar.
“I could not be more honored to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. To look around the space and see my personal heroes and artists who helped shape country music is a surreal feeling,” Aldean says. “To be a part of a legacy like this really is a dream come true.”
The “Any ‘Ol Barstool” singer isn’t the only country superstar to have their own exhibit at the CMHOF this year. Shania Twain and Loretta Lynn will also have displays dedicated to their careers, along with beloved couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who will share a joint exhibit. An exhibit called American Currents (The Music of 2016) — currently on display — features artifacts from the likes of Brett Eldredge, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert and more.
Aldean’s music will be on display live when he plays the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival in June.
