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.

Laura Bell Bundy and Bobby Bones Dance to Fight Hunger

Laura Bell Bundy Dance to Support 30 Abes

Laura Bell Bundy has joined forces with nationally syndicated radio host, Bobby Bones, for a 24-hour dance marathon to raise money for 30 Abes, an organization which helps feed orphans in Haiti.

Beginning at 7:00am on Wednesday, September 18th, Laura, Bobby and Bobby’s crew (including Amy, Lunchbox, Eddie, Alayna, and Ray) will gather at Nashville’s aVenue and attempt to dance for 24 consecutive hours, while looping Laura’s newest single, “Two Step.”

Fans are welcome to attend and participate in the event, titled “Two Step for 30 Abes,” or watch via live stream on BobbyBones.com.

Laura will make a guest appearance on The Bobby Bones Show this Friday, September 13th, to promote the cause and the event. “It’s wonderful to have an opportunity to give back with ‘Two Step!’… dancing for donations!” she said. “We are going to have a lot of fun in the process – and probably some lower back pain!”

Leading up to the dance marathon, Bobby and his band, The Raging Idiots, will perform a concert fundraiser for 30 Abes in Wichita, Kansas. Laura will also be making a special appearance at the Wichita event.

“I’ll Fly Away” Foundation Schedules Two Fundraisers

image006

“I’ll Fly Away” is one of the most recognized songs that has provided comfort for millions around the world for the last 80 years.  Now “I’ll Fly Away” is poised to give hope for the next generation.

The I’ll Fly Away Foundation has been formed to educate our children as to the importance of our musical history through scholarships and musical education programs. The I’ll Fly Away Foundation believes music education is the key to the success of our preservation mission and will conduct demonstration tours to schools of all levels to educate the next generation about the musical heritage and traditions of America. The I’ll Fly Away Foundation is set to grant scholarships to qualified recipients in 2012.

The name I’ll Fly Away Foundation was taken from the world’s most recorded song, “I’ll Fly Away,” written by Albert E. Brumley in 1932.  Mr. Brumley was a pioneer of American Gospel music as well as Bluegrass and Country recordings.  The I’ll Fly Away Foundation is dedicated to educating the upcoming generations as to the importance of the old songs that shaped American Music into what it is today.

The Chairman of the I’ll Fly Away Foundation is Betsy Brumley, Albert E. Brumley’s granddaughter.  Betsy is following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather in recognizing that we must hold on to our roots of music and preserve it for the future.

At this time there are two fundraisers scheduled for 2012. March 24, 2012 in Neosho, Missouri featuring The Chuck Wagon Gang and on October 13, 2012 in Rogers, Arkansas featuring the Oak Ridge Boys, Daily & Vincent and The Blackwood Brothers Quartet.
