The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will explore the life and career of Dierks Bentley with the exhibit Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory. Presented by Citi, the exhibit opens March 4 and runs through Sept. 6. Stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more items from Bentley’s personal collection will be on display in the museum.
To celebrate the launch of the exhibit, the museum will host a special appearance by Bentley on March 12 at 2 p.m. in the museum’s 800-seat CMA Theater. Bentley will discuss his career and perform a short acoustic set. The program will be hosted by museum editor Peter Cooper.
“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this,” Bentley said. “The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway. I’m going to have to go down there to see it for myself to really make it sink in.”
“A master of reinvention, Dierks continues to confound our expectations with music that resonates, both commercially and critically,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “Every mile, every day, every song in Dierks’ remarkable career creates new memories for him and for his fans. I know our visitors will enjoy getting a peek inside some of those memories.”
The March 12 museum program, featuring Bentley in conversation and performance, is included with museum admission and free to museum members. The program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
