CMA and Country Music Hall of Fame to Host FREE Concert

CMHOF

The Country Music Association (CMA) and the Country Music Hall of Fame ® and Museum will partner to host Forever Country Live presented by Southwest Airlines®, a FREE concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the museum’s opening and the CMA Awards. The community event will be held Sunday, Sept. 25, at Walk of Fame Park in downtown Nashville, with performances by Warner Bros. recording artist Charlie Worsham and Grammy-nominated ensemble The Time Jumpers, featuring Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill, Kenny Sears, “Ranger Doug” Green, and Paul Franklin.

The event is the official launch of Country Music Month, celebrated in October. Festivities culminate Wednesday, Nov. 2, with the live, national broadcast of “The 50th Annual CMA Awards” on the ABC Television Network. The concert also kicks off the museum’s initiatives to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2017.

“This free community concert underscores the rich traditions upheld by both organizations,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “We hope guests will leave this event inspired by our shared legacy and excited about the future of Country Music.”

“The museum opened its doors in April 1967, almost 50 years ago,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “That same year the very first CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year was presented to Country Music Hall of Fame member Eddy Arnold. With a shared mission of preserving Country Music’s history and advancing its cultural importance, it is only fitting that we partner with CMA to celebrate our half-century milestones with an evening of timeless music.”

“Celebrating 30 years of service as Nashville’s hometown airline, we’re excited to partner with CMA and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to honor Music City and 50 years of Country Music,” said Kimberly Greiner, Southwest Airlines Manager of Community Engagement.

The family-friendly event begins at 3:00 PM/CDT. Kids of all ages can enjoy making buttons, playing an instrument in the musical petting zoo, pulling their own Hatch Show Print postcard, and creating a community mural. Some of Nashville’s favorite food trucks will be on hand, and attendees can enjoy cuisine from 2|22, Red Onion, and Bajo Sexto Taco, located at the museum. The museum will also offer $5 off admission on Sept. 25, and remain open until 7:00 PM/CDT. A special pop-up exhibit chronicling 50 years of the CMA Awards will be hosted in the museum’s Mike Curb Conservatory.

The concert begins at 4:00 PM/CDT with Worsham opening the show. The Time Jumpers will take the stage at 5:00 PM/CDT. Past CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Patty Loveless will join The Time Jumpers for a special appearance.

Country stars Kristian Bush and Charlie Worsham participated in various events across Washington, D.C. Wednesday ahead of their involvement with the National Association for Music Education’s annual Hill Day advocating for music education on behalf of the CMA Foundation.

Their first stop was The National Press Club, where Bush and Worsham entertained the crowd of journalists and fans with an acoustic performance. They were joined by CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern and CMA Foundation Board Chairman Joe Galante for a panel discussion about the organization’s trip to the Hill. The panel was moderated by National Press Club President Thomas Burr.

Later in the evening Bush and Worsham participated in the CMA Songwriters Series, also featuring songwriter Jim Collins, for a full house at the Library of Congress’ Coolidge Auditorium.

This past weekend, Charlie Worsham hosted “Midnite Jamboree Hosted by Charlie Worsham Featuring ??” with different surprise performances by special guests Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, including Eric Church, Vince Gill, Kid Rock, Hunter Hayes, Brandy Clark, Aubrie Sellers, the Brothers Osborne, Brent Cobb, Margo Price and Lucie Silvas. The event was held at the iconic Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broadway in downtown Nashville Thursday and Friday evening, and was moved to a larger venue, aVenue, Saturday evening to accommodate the massive amount of fans who wanted to attend.

As long as he can remember, Worsham has had a deep love and appreciation for the history and impact that Ernest Tubb has had on country music, specifically with the record store he opened in the ’40’s, and the Jamboree that he started in that record shop, which over the years developed a reputation for giving struggling young country artists the opportunity to shine.

“This weekend, we shined a light on one of country music’s most hallowed landmarks,” Worsham said. “Thank you so much to the loyal fans who came out, and to the incredibly gracious artists who joined me on stage. I am blessed everyone put the music first, followed their hearts and let some big magic happen over the past few days. My heart and soul are overflowing with gratitude, joy and love.”

In addition to hosting “Midnite Jamboree” Worsham just completed his first album in three years, with release dates being announced soon.
