Luke Bryan Overwhelmed by Hall of Fame Exhibit

Superstar's Dirt Road Diary Provides Glimpse Into His Life

From his grade school backpack to his first guitar and a lengthy list of accolades and awards, fans anxious for a glimpse into the life of superstar Luke Bryan don’t have to look any farther than his new Dirt Road Diary exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.

“It’s an amazing day for me,” Bryan told friends, fans and other supporters this week during a reception at the museum. “And thank you for letting me have a little place in such a magical world in the heart of Nashville.”

The exhibit officially opened Friday (May 22) and runs through Nov. 8.

The Georgia native says seeing his life on display is unlike anything he’s ever experienced.

“I haven’t taken it all in yet,” he told CMT Hot 20 Countdown. “But I think it’s really amazing that it could be put in here and people can come by and experience it. It’s a weird feeling right now. I feel like a fan of myself when I get to take it all in.

“But I’m certainly excited from what I can see right now,” he said. “I’m pretty nervous. I don’t get nervous much. Anytime you get real anxious, it feels like I’m doing a big show in here.”

Earlier in the week, he announced plans to release a new album, Kill the Lights, on Aug. 7 and performed his new single, “Kick the Dust Up,” during appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Voice.
