Chris Stapleton, James Taylor to Join Vince Gill for All for the Hall Los Angeles
On Sept. 27, those fans lucky enough to score a ticket to the benefit show will be able to watch Gill, Stapleton and Taylor participate in a guitar pull, the country music tradition during which artists appear together onstage and take turns playing their songs and adding harmonies or instrumentals to each other's work. VIP tables and half tables for the event run $10,000 and $5,000, respectively -- likely far too pricey for the average fan's budget -- but details on balcony seating will be announced at a later date. More information on VIP packages and tickets is available on the Hall of Fame's website.
Proceeds from All for the Hall Los Angeles will benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's education programs. As part of the evening's celebrations, students from LA's Dorris Place Elementary School -- through the Hall of Fame's partnership with Education Through Music Los Angeles -- will serve as the show's opening act, under the direction of songwriter Liz Rose.
The All for the Hall campaign began in 2005. Eleven years later, benefits are held annually in Nashville and on a rotating basis between Los Angeles and New York City. Past participating artists include Jason Aldean, Zac Brown, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Dwight Yoakam and more.
