Tomorrow, May 27, the new Blake Shelton exhibit will officially open at The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum in Nashville, and guess what will be making an appearance there … Blake’s tricked out red chair from “The Voice.

Or at least one of them will. According to People.com, there were several duplicates made.

“I spend a lot of time in that chair,” Shelton, 39, told PEOPLE, “and I think that will be a cool addition [to the exhibit].”

The Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story exhibit will chronicle the Oklahoma native’s rise to fame using special memorabilia from his life and career. It will follow his childhood and his move to Nashville as a teen, to his multi-platinum recording breakthrough, to becoming a national celebrity on NBC’s The Voice. A range of artifacts will tell the story of the struggles and triumphs of one of country music’s most popular and multi-dimensional artists.

A few highlights of the exhibition include:

  • Very early Blake Shelton merchandise sold by Blake and his family at his 1994 concert in his hometown, Ada, Oklahoma
  • A memo pad with the lyrics to the first song Shelton wrote.
  • Shelton’s first royalty check, in the amount of $2.73
  • Plaid shirt worn by Blake when he moved to Nashville
  • Aria acoustic guitar used by Shelton on his first radio tour, to promote his 2001 single “Austin”
  • Elf costume worn by Shelton on NBC-TV’s Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas special in 2012
  • Shelton’s 2011 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year award
  • Shelton’s 2011 ACM Male Vocalist of the Year
  • 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards slime suit worn by Shelton

In support of the exhibition, the museum will live stream an interview and performance with Shelton on Monday, June 6, at 3:00 p.m. Hosted by museum editor Michael McCall, Shelton will discuss his career and perform a short acoustic set. The museum will also live stream remarks from Shelton at his private exhibit opening celebration on June 6 at 6:00 p.m. Tune into both programs at www.countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
