Blake Shelton is set to be the newest subject of an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Titled Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story, the attraction will open to fans on May 27 and trace Blake’s path to superstardom and national celebrity as a country singer and coach on NBC’s singing competition The Voice. The exhibit will include a wide array of Blake’s personal items, including stage clothes, instruments, handwritten song lyrics and never-before-seen photos.

In an official statement, Blake says having his own space in the famous museum is hard to believe.

“I came to Nashville in 1994, and I’ve always been fascinated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” he says. “I remember the first time I walked in there, I was blown away. To have my own exhibit is more than a dream come true, because I never dreamed it could happen! It’s crazy, is what it is. I couldn’t be more excited or more honored than to be a part of the museum.”

Among the other contemporary country stars who have recently been featured in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum are Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Eric Church and Luke Bryan.
