A series of recording sessions in 1927 have taken on legendary status, as they marked the debut of two country music legends: Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family.
In Nashville last night, nearly a dozen country artists performed at the annual We’re All 4 the Hall concert benefitting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The show was hosted by Keith Urban and Vince Gill, and at the end of the show, Urban took the stage to announce that, while final numbers were still being tallied, the show had already raised more than $600,000.
“I thought it’ll be a cool, intimate evening on a large scale for people to learn something about songs they love,” Urban told Radio.com about tonight’s concert, which benefits the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The theme of this year’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum benefit is Songtellers (A LARGE Intimate Evening), and participants include Urban, Vince Gill, Reba, Kacey Musgraves, Brantley Gilbert and Ronnie Milsap. See the full list of performers!
“This record came from such a beautiful place of reverence and respect,” Gill told Radio.com about “Bakersfield,” which was just issued in a deluxe version. “The fact that Merle [Haggard] wrote the liner notes and got to hear it, that to me was reason enough for making it.”
Making her new album “Slow Me Down,” said Evans, “has been a truly amazing experience. I had the chance to [work] with some of my favorite writers and some truly incredible musicians — and now hearing what we created gives me an incredible sense of pride.”
The best-selling country star, ‘Bakersfield’ champion and Time Jumpers bandmember is the latest musical legend to earn the Career Achievement Award from Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.
Many country fans will tell you that Ashley Monroe‘s Like A Rose, released back in March, is among the genre’s best albums of the year.
