Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary at the Country Music Hall of Fame - NOW OPEN!

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore the life and career of Luke Bryan with the summer exhibition Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary presented by Citi, which is now open and runs through November 8. 

Opening weekend festivities will include a songwriter session on May 23 at 2 p.m. featuring Ashley Gorley and Rodney Clawson, who’ve written many #1 hits for Bryan. Family programming at 12:30 p.m. on May 23 will give visitors a chance to design their own album covers, inspired by Bryan’s work. Additional programming planned for the exhibition’s run will feature a performance August 1 by the Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip).. And a conversation with Bryan’s producer, Jeff Stevens, will be part of the museum’s Music Masters series, on August 8. Visit countrymusichalloffame.org for details.

Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary will examine Luke’s roots and rise to stardom. His parents gave him a guitar when he was fourteen, and soon Bryan was writing songs and leading his own band.  It took him twenty years of hard work and perseverance, but he is living his childhood dream.

For the exhibit, Bryan has loaned the museum a wealth of artifacts to represent his life and career. Highlights include:

Little League baseball uniform and glove
Second grade school backpack and denim jacket
First guitar, which his parents gave him when he was fourteen
A script from his high school production of
Annie Get Your Gun, in which he starred
Handwritten lyrics to his 2014 chart-topping single, “I See You”
Stage props from his Spring Break concerts
Tour posters
Stage clothes worn by Bryan at concerts and awards shows
Music awards, including trophies for his ACM and CMA Entertainer of the Year wins
Bow and arrows used by Bryan on the Outdoor Channel reality series Buck Commander: Protected by Under Armour
