Today I learned that the license plate art guitar sculpture that I created for country music star Brad Paisley is featured in his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN.
A few years ago, I had the privilege of recreating Brad Paisley's signature Telecaster style using his own license plates that he had saved and shared with me. I had read about his vanity plate, GTRPLR. which you can see in the center, and mentioned in a Southern Living article that I would love to use it in a guitar. That caught his attention, and the guitar was created. I met him in Raleigh when he played at Walnut Creek, and he was very gracious. (I had already delivered the license plate guitar art sculpture to him which is why I'm just holding a photo.)
Today I learned that Brad Paisley chose my license plate guitar to be included in his exhibit, Diary of a Player, which opened today at the Country Music Hall of Fame. My guitar will be on display from November 18, 2016 - May 14, 2017. If you're in Nashville, let me know if you see the exhibit. I hope to get there soon.
