With hard-rock swagger and hip-hop rhythms Jason Aldean’s music celebrates life in the South and has had significant impact on country music. The exhibit will describe the ACM Entertainer of the Year’s early encouragement he received from both parents, his move to Nashville, his struggle to get his music heard and his groundbreaking success with an independent record company. The emergence of RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time's wide-open sound is one of the defining elements in today’s country music.
"I am extremely honored to be invited to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Aldean. “That building is filled with the artists who helped create and shape country music, so to be a part of that legacy is something I am very proud of."
