Carrie Underwood + Brad Paisley Booked for Country Music Hall of Fame Fundraiser
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are teaming up yet again, this time to raise money for one of the most prestigious institutions in the country music industry, the Country Music Hall of Fame. The pair will headline its annual All for the Hall fundraising concert.
This year’s show will take place at the Times Square Best Buy Theater in New York on October 6, 2015 and will also feature Hall of Fame members Emmylou Harris and Vince Gill, who return to play the fundraiser every year.
The event is uniquely formatted in a “guitar pull” style, a Nashville tradition in which a small group of musicians get together on stage and take turns playing their songs while others look on and even join in with harmony or instrumentation. The artists don’t decide what they will play until they get on stage, so audiences never know what kind of treat they’re in for!
All for the Hall began in 2005 and has hosted artists like Jason Aldean, Zac Brown, Sheryl Crow, Patty Griffin, Taylor Swift and Kris Kristoffersen (and more) in the past. This year’s funds will go toward supporting the Hall of Fame’s educational programs, which aim to teach audiences about the “enduring beauty and cultural importance of country music.” To learn more about the event or purchase tickets, visit the event website.
Underwood has been back in the spotlight lately after the birth of her son Isaiah in February, performing a flawless set at the CMT Music Awards, working on music for a new record and even opening for the Rolling Stones with none other than Paisley with their hit “Remind Me.” Paisley is currently on the road all around the country on his Crushin’ It tour, which runs through October.
