NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Keith Urban celebrated the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Tuesday night.
The exhibit, “Keith Urban So Far…,” features awards and artifacts from his long career, which started when Urban was a child in Australia.
The singer-guitarist got his first look at the exhibit Tuesday. He told News 2 about the emotions of seeing his life in the form of a museum exhibit.
“It’s a little overwhelming, I must say,” said Urban. “It’s a bit of a ‘this is your life,’ which is a crazy feeling.”
“It’s amazing the things that my mom has kept. Some of these things I haven’t seen since I was a little kid. So it’s kind of crazy. God bless her for keeping all this stuff.”
The exhibit shows guitars that were damaged in the 2010 flood, stage-worn clothes, original handwritten song manuscripts and Grammy, CMA and ACM awards.
“Keith Urban So Far…” sits just steps from the exhibits of legends like Loretta Lynn, George Jones and Johnny Cash. The significance is not lost on Urban.
“It’s a huge honor,” Urban said.
The exhibit will remain open until May 2016.
