Blake Shelton definitely has a lot to celebrate right now! He has a new album coming out soon, and plans to release a new single on March 8. In addition, Shelton's also celebrating the tenth season of The Voice, which kicked off earlier this week.
On top of all that, Shelton made what could very well be one of the biggest announcements of his entire career on Friday (Mar. 4).
Through a video message to his fans, Shelton revealed that he is getting an exhibit in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum!
The Hall of Fame released an article about Shelton's upcoming exhibit, saying it will be called Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story, after his 2013 album of the same title. A wealth of artifacts will be featured in the exhibit, including photos, personal items, and song manuscripts. Through these artifacts, the exhibit will follow Shelton's story and all of his struggles and triumphs.
Opening day for the exhibit is May 27, and Shelton couldn't be more excited about it.
"We've been working on this for a long time and I've been dying to talk about it," he said in a video shared by the Hall of Fame. "I couldn't be more excited or be more honored to say that I'm getting my very own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and I'm absolutely blown away."
Shelton said the exhibit will include artifacts from all stages of his life, since he managed to find important things he had saved from when he was still a young teen:
"It's crazy, and it's been the most exciting thing for me because I've been able to go back and dig through things that I've saved for the last hundred years that I can't even believe I've saved. I've saved things from the time I was 15 years old that are important to me that had to do with country music."
Shelton remembers visiting the Hall of Fame for the first time, and how he never imagined he would one day have a featured exhibit there.
"This is one of those things that I never dreamed about cause I never really thought it was possible. Thank you." Shelton said.
We honestly aren't surprised to hear the news about Shelton's exhibit in the Hall of Fame. If anything, we're surprised it took this long! Tune in below to watch Shelton's announcement about the exhibit.
Shelton has definitely earned this honor. Congratulations!
