The superstar preveiwed the exhibit on Wednesday, May 20th.
“I was excited to go seek out my old instruments and stuff. I think one thing that was amazing was that we found the very first song I wrote and performed for my church, and something had spilled on the lyrics and you can’t see half the lyrics, so I remember that day singing that song, and we were able to find that song in my piano bench. So, yeah, going and getting all of the instruments, but then when you find out it’s also a life piece. It’s named kind of ‘Dirt Road Diary’ to tell the whole story of me and my youth.”
Opening weekend of Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary will feature many festivities, including a songwriter session on Saturday, May 23rd afternoon with Ashley Gorley and Rodney Clawson, who’ve written many Number One hits for Luke.
The exhibit runs through November 8th.
