Most of the country stars in Nashville right now got their start at an early age, long before they made the move to Music City. And Jason Aldean is no exception.
In high school, Aldean had a band called the Young Guns. The set list they played at their gigs — maybe at church events and graduation parties — is one of the career momentos that will be on display when his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opens on May 26.
Jason Aldean: Asphalt Cowboy will showcase bits and pieces of Aldean’s life and his career as a country singer.
“To look around the space and see my personal heroes and artists who helped shape country music is a surreal feeling. To be a part of a legacy like this really is a dream come true,” Aldean said in a press release.
In addition to the vintage set list, fans will also be able to check out Aldean’s high school graduation photo, his first guitar (a gift from his father), a poster for the Trisha Yearwood concert in the late ’90s when Aldean was her opener, and much more.
