Lionel Richie will perform at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All for the HallLos Angelesfundraiser on Thursday, September 23, at Club Nokia, Museum officials announced last week. The event, which will follow a “guitar pull” format, will feature performances by Country Music Hall of Fame members Emmylou Harris and Kris Kristofferson, superstar Taylor Swift, and a very special fourth chair who must remain anonymous. Richie will be a special guest.
The evening offers a unique opportunity to see these acclaimed singer-songwriters interact with one another as they take turns swapping songs, stories and personal recollections. The “guitar pull” is a Nashville specialty; it originated in the homes of Nashville songwriters who gathered to try out new compositions for their peers. Nashville’s most storied guitar pulls were hosted by Johnny and June Carter Cash. The hallmarks of a great guitar pull are spontaneity and camaraderie.
All for the Hall Los Angeles patrons are offered their choice of table seating for five for $5,000, or individual tickets at $1,000 per seat. A cocktail reception and dinner will precede the guitar pull. To purchase tickets or for more information, patrons may contact Holly Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (615) 416-2035 or (800) 852-6437.
