The exhibition Jason Aldean: Asphalt Cowboy surveys the life and career of the hard-working, Georgia native who combined hard-rock and hip-hop rhythms to create an original and award winning-sound.
"Years of touring across the country, burning up the asphalt, have led him to country music superstardom on a ride that’s far from over,” says Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young.
Asphalt Cowboy traces Aldean’s career, from the early encouragement he received from his parents, playing nightclubs in Georgia in high school, touring as an unsigned country act, to his move to Nashville, and his groundbreaking success with an independent record company.
The exhibition presents career and personal memorabilia, including stage wear, instruments, manuscripts, awards, and more, that showcase Aldean’s ongoing, triumphant accomplishments.
“I could not be more honored to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” said the two-time and reigning Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year. “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."
