A country music star who grew up near Sacramento is now the subject of an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.

It's called  "Lee Greenwood: American Patriot" and gives fans some insight into his life.  On display is military memorabilia he's received over the years on USO tours and from veterans groups, such as his replica of the freedom bell in the DMZ in Korea.  A saxophone the Oak Ridge Boys gave him, a thank you letter from President George H.W. Bush for his participation in the 1989 inauguration ceremony, honorary degrees, Grammys, and about a dozen hand-crocheted quilts fans have given him.

"I have about a dozen quilts that were hand crocheted by fans over the years, and I've saved them all, you know.  I said that's something that's really important to me, after all the awards and everything, it's the quilts," Greenwood said.

"Lee Greenwood: American Patriot" will remain open at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville through April 25th.
