With his Life Amplified World Tour coming to a close on October 1st, Brad Paisley is looking forward to a different sort of multi-month run: an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville.

Announced today, the still-untitled exhibition launches November 18th, shining a light on Paisley’s stage clothes, instruments, performance photographs, awards, personal mementos and childhood artifacts. His talent as a guitarist will serve as a focal point, with multiple artifacts playing up the connection between Paisley and his guitar heroes, including James Burton, Keith Richards and Chet Atkins. Meanwhile, his very first guitar — a Sears Danelectro Silvertone, purchased by his grandfather and passed down to the 8-year-old Paisley as a Christmas gift in 1980 — is already on display at the museum, laying the foundation for the larger exhibit that kicks off in two months.

The exhibit runs until May 14, 2017, with Paisley joining a number of contemporary artists — including Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift — who’ve received their own career-spanning exhibits at the Country Hall of Fame.
