On March 4th, the Nokia Theater will host the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s All for the Hall fundraiser, making it the first time this event has been held in Los Angeles in three years.

“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.”

This year’s fundraiser will be hosted by actress/singer/film producer Rita Wilson, and feature performances by Country Music Hall of Fame members Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris. Joining them will be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Heart and Grammy Award-winning artist Jason Mraz.

Country rocker Eric Church will be part of a stellar line-up celebrating the music of Levon Helm this October. The special tribute concert “Love For Levon” will take place on October 2nd at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It’s a night that means something important to Eric, who explains:

“I can’t possibly overstate what Levon Helm meant to my music or my life.  He was a giant.  A man among boys.  I miss him personally, but that pales in comparison to how much music will miss his presence.”

The event will also feature collaborations and performances by Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, Marc Cohn, Patty Griffin, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Jorma Kaukonen, Ray LaMontagne, John Mayer, Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams, My Morning Jacket, The Levon Helm Band and many more.

Tickets for the public will go on-sale on Wednesday, August 29th at 11 am EST on Ticketmaster. Proceeds from the event will benefit Levon’s estate and his Midnight Ramble concerts.

Eric will kick off the new leg of his “Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour” on September 13th in Amhurst, MA. His headlining arena tour will feature special guests Kip Moore and Justin Moore.
