The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All for the Hall fundraiser will return to Los Angeles for the first time in nearly three years on Tuesday, March 4, at Club Nokia. It will again follow a “guitar pull” format, featuring performances by Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Heart and Jason Mraz. Actress Rita Wilson will serve as the event’s host.
“California, with its rich country music history, has proven to be a supremely appropriate and welcoming location for this event,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “In fact, some of the state’s contributions to our genre are the subject of our very popular limited-engagement exhibition, The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country, whose run we’ve extended through the end of 2014. Los Angeles has always given our All for the Hall event a very warm welcome, and we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones in March.”
The evening will give fans a unique opportunity to witness the artists interact with one another while sharing the stories behind their songs and personal recollections. The “guitar pull” is a Nashville specialty, originating in the homes of Music City songwriters who gathered to share new compositions with their peers. The most legendary pulls were hosted by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.
The museum launched All for the Hall, its first non-bricks-and-mortar fundraising campaign, in 2005 to address the museum’s need for long-term financial security and provide a safety net for the institution and its work. This is the seventh year the museum has taken the event on the road.
