Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum Honors Dierks Bentley With "Every Mile A Memory" Exhibit

He was Mr. September on their 2013 calendar, but in 2016, Dierks Bentley is being honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum on a whole new level.

With the Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory exhibit, the CMHOF will will explore the life and career of Dierks, opening March 4, 2016, and running through Sept. 6, 2016. The exhibition will include stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more from Bentley’s personal collection.

No word on what will be included in the "and more" from his personal collection, but we're hoping there's a DB Congress mention in there somewhere!

To celebrate the launch of the exhibit, the museum will host a special appearance by the “Somewhere on a Beach” singer on Saturday, 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,” shares Bentley. “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,” says 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 Seating is limited; museum members can reserve tickets via beginning at 10 a.m., on Feb. 10.

Bentley is offering pre-sale tickets to his fan club members, Feb. 10-16. Fans can sign up to join The Congress and become a member of Bentley’s fan club. Presale on Wednesday, Feb 10th begins at 10 am central.
