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.
The talented and ever adorable, Hunter Hayes, has his first number one album with Hunter Hayes [Encore]!
Encore is a re-release of his self-titled debut album and sits at the top of the Billboard Country Chart this week.
The album features eight new or re-recorded songs as well as collaborations with Jason Mraz and Ashley Monroe. The album also includes Hayes’ current single “I Want Crazy”, which is quickly approaching the top of the charts. The single sold 100,000 copies just last week alone, and was number one on the iTunes singles chart after his performance on The Voice last week.
The Grammy nominated singer will be hitting the road for his CMT On Tour: Let’s Be Crazy tour this fall. Monroe will be joining Hayes as the opening act, and the tour will kick off in Knoxville, TN on October 10th.
Congratulations, Hunter, on your number one album!
