2qi3a4h

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.
