2014 Hot Nights at the Hall Schedule:

 Tuesday, June 3        The Henningsens
The Henningsens are a family trio—father Brian Henningsen, daughter Clara Henningsen and son Aaron Henningsen—with deep farming roots. Musically, they have distinguished themselves both as songwriters and as performers specializing in lush harmonies. Before the group charmed audiences with their own self-penned hit “American Beautiful,” they provided The Band Perry with the dynamic “You Lie” and the chart-topping “All Your Life.”  The Henningsens spent the summer of 2013 on tour with Brad Paisley. They have released a self-titled EP and are currently readying their debut full-length album.

Thursday, July 10     Josh Thompson
Josh Thompson serves up southern-rock-infused anthems that provide rollicking escape for listeners looking to unwind. He also has a way with heartfelt story songs that pay homage to his classic country roots. Thompson’s 2010 debut album, Way Out Here, featured the hit “Beer on the Table.” He has written songs for Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley, and he has opened for acts including Aldean, Paisley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Church and Justin Moore. Thompson’s new album, Turn It Up, has already yielded the chart-climber “Cold Beer with Your Name on It.” His latest single, “Wanted Me Gone,” is at country radio now.

Friday, August 1       Holly Williams
Holly Williams has allowed her art to evolve over time. After two acclaimed albums, her confidence and patience have made her one of Nashville’s most intriguing young singer-songwriters. The daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams, she has emerged with her own style, prompting the New York Times to declare, “She’s often closer to songwriters like John Prine or Bruce Springsteen.” Guests including Dierks Bentley, Jackson Browne, Jakob Dylan and Gwyneth Paltrow appear on Williams’ album The Highway, released last year.

Museum members are invited to take self-guided tours of select museum galleries prior to each show at 5:30 p.m. Doors to the Event Hall will open at 6:00 p.m., and the concerts begin at 7:00 p.m. Each concert will be followed by an autograph signing.
