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.

The Time Jumpers Member Dawn Sears

According to The Time Jumpers website Dawn Sears, one of the amazing vocalists in the band, has been diagnosed with Stage 3B lung cancer. Dawn is also a long time member of Vince Gill’s touring band. She is currently undergoing treatment in Nashville and she plans to keep performing until her treatment says otherwise. Her husband and fellow band member, Kenny Sears, asked for the family’s privacy to be considered as they go through this difficult time.

You can catch The Time Jumpers perform every Monday night in Nashville at 3rd & Lindsley. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dawn Sears and her family!
