For the first time in almost three years, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All for the Hall fundraiser will return to Los Angeles. The annual event will take place on March 4 at Club Nokia located within AEG’s downtown L.A. Live complex.
As in the past, the show will be anchored by Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris and follow a “guitar pull” format, a Nashville specialty during which singer/songwriters take turns exchanging songs, stories and personal memories. Special guests joining Gill and Harris this time around are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Heart, Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz and special guests. Host for the evening: actress/singer/film producer Rita Wilson.
The March 4 edition marks the seventh year that the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has taken All for the Hall on the road. Established in 2005, All for the Hall supports the museum’s ongoing programs and initiatives fostering the legacy of country music. These include the limited-engagement exhibition “The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country,” whose run has now been extended through the end of 2014.
All for the Hall (www.countrymusichalloffame.org/afthla) is chaired by BMI president/CEO Del Bryant and produced by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) Nashville agent & partner Rod Essig, Vector Management founder/co-president Ken Levitan and BMI Nashville’s VP of writer/publisher relations Jody Williams.
