All For The Hall Fundraiser Is Ready For Its Third Year In Los Angeles

This September Club Nokia will hold the third consecutive Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All for the Hall fundraiser. The event will be on Tuesday, September 13 and will feature performances from Country Music Hall of Fame stars Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris, and Sheryl Crow and Zac Brown in a “guitar pull” format.

The “guitar pull” is a Nashville specialty, one in which stars come together to swap songs, stories, and personal recollections. Following the guitar pull will be a cocktail reception and dinner.
“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. “Our 2009 All for the Hall Los Angeles debut gave us an opportunity to focus on West Coast country music history and remind our guests that these artists and executives and their songs are a part of the story we both preserve and teach at the Museum. We built on that with last year’s event, during which we announced that the Museum’s next major exhibition will focus on Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and the Bakersfield Sound.”
All for the Hall Los Angeles patrons are offered their choice of seating for 10 for $10,000 or five for $5,000 or individual tickets for $1,000. For tickets fans may contact Rachel Shapiro at or telephone (615) 416-2069 or (800) 852-6437.
The event is chaired by AEG Live Chairman Tim Leiweke and produced by CAA’s Rod Essig, Vector Management’s Ken Levitan and BMI’s Jody Williams. The 2011 host committee includes Mark Bloom (UBS Financial Services), John Frankenheimer (Loeb & Loeb), Gary Haber (Haber Corporation), Neil Portnow (The Recording Academy) and Bob Romeo (Academy of Country Music).
