NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Carrie Underwood unveiled the new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that is dedicated to memorabilia from her recent Blown Away tour.

The museum has recreated nearly a dozen vignettes from The Blown Away tour inside the building that houses memories from some of the biggest names in country music. It is a fact not lost on Underwood.

"Look around and you see things and artifacts from people like Dolly and Loretta and George Jones, you know, people I grew up loving and listening to," Underwood said.

The exhibit features gowns and outfits worn by Underwood while she performed on stage. It also includes costumes from several band members. Customized microphones used by the singer on stage and several of her band's instruments are also part of the exhibit.

Museum patrons will find a section of the exhibit dedicated to Underwood's fans. Memorabilia collected during the star's meet and greet sessions is on display. There is a selection of gifts and signs presented to Underwood during the backstage meetings.

Underwood wanted to make the fans part of the display, because she felt the exhibit would not exist, if not for them.

"Hopefully they'll be able to come by and be like, I gave her that, that's my sign. Hopefully they'll be excited about being a part of this, as well as being part of my tour," Underwood explained.

The Blown Away tour exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opens on June 5th and runs through November 10th at the facility in downtown Nashville.
