Brad Paisley Museum Exhibits Opens
Brad Paisley was honored on Thursday, November 17th in Nashville at an event to celebrate his exhibit at the Country Music Hall Of Fame and Museum. The exhibit includes musical instruments, performance clothing, manuscripts, awards, photographs, childhood mementos including early examples of Brad’s talent for drawings and illustrations and other items that shed light on Brad’s life and career. Items in the exhibit also will illustrate his connections to many of his guitar heroes, including Chet Atkins, James Burton, Little Jimmy Dickens, John Jorgenson, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, and Don Rich of the Buckaroos.
As he stood in the rotunda of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Brad told reporters that seeing the guitar given to him by his grandfather makes him realize the path it put him on.
“It’s crazy when you look back and you see these things that I remember the dreams associated with each little item as I look back. I see like the first guitar which is in this display which is that Silvertone with the amp in the case and my grandfather so excited to give me this used piece of his history as a Christmas gift, which was just cheap on his part (laughter). The idea that I would start playing that and develop goals and dreams that would lead me to stand in this circle today is crazy.”
Brad Paisley: Diary Of A Player runs until May 14th 2017.
