Country music icon Alan Jackson is lending some of his most personal artifacts to the Country Music Hall of Fame for a special exhibit celebrating his 25-year career.

The Grammy winner’s most notable items will be featured in Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country at the country music Mecca in Nashville, Tennessee.

Beginning on Aug. 29, fans will be able to visit the exhibition chronicling his rise to fame, and view items such as his handwritten lyrics to hits “Livin’ on Love” and “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” and various awards he’s won throughout the years.

Also on display will be the Harley-Davidson motorcycle featured on the cover of Jackson’s “A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ‘Bout Love)” album, the water ski from the Chattahoochee music video, and his childhood bicycle.

In addition, Jackson was also named the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Artist-in-Residence for 2014. With the honor, he will perform a number of intimate concerts for fans this autumn.

Musicians such as Kenny Rogers, Vince Gill and Kris Kristofferson have previously been named the Hall of Fame’s Artist-in-Residence.

This will mark the first time an Artist-in-Residence has a corresponding special exhibition at the museum.
