Musgraves has won two Grammys, for Best Country Song (“Merry Go ’Round”) and Best Country Album (Same Trailer Different Park), and has also taken home the award for New Artist of the Year at 2013’s CMA Awards, the ACM Award for Album of the Year (Same Trailer Different Park), and the 2014 CMA Award for Song of the Year (“Follow Your Arrow”).

In 1975, Rolling Stone wrote that Joe Walsh “stands surely among rock and roll’s finest guitarists.” Now, with a career spanning nearly half a century, Walsh has earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s list of “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.” Best known for his powerful guitar licks, the Grammy-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member has entertained the masses with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” Walsh has been a founder and member of several successful rock bands, from the James Gang to the Eagles, and he has also had a successful solo career. Walsh has contributed to a long list of hits, including “Life in the Fast Lane” and “Hotel California” both singles from the album Hotel California which has sold over 50 million copies. Walsh was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Eagles in 1998, the first year they were nominated. In 2012, Walsh released Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, and continues to perform solo shows around the world, currently on his Walsh Toor 2016.
Attendees of All for the Hall Los Angeles will have the rare opportunity to witness award-winning, critically acclaimed artists partake in a southern tradition known as the guitar pull, in which a small group of artists takes turns presenting their songs while the other artists look on or add harmony and instrumentation. Some of the most legendary guitar pull sessions were hosted by Johnny and June Carter Cash. All for the Hall Los Angeles participants will decide what to sing in the spur-of-the-moment, no-set-list show, as they casually swap songs and stories during this one-of-a-kind event.
The Museum’s All for the Hall campaign began in 2005; it addresses the Museum’s need for long-term financial security. In its ninth year, between New York City and Los Angeles— two cities rich with music history— the annual fundraising event provides a safety net for the institution and its work. This year’s proceeds will support the Museum’s educational programs, which teach audiences about the enduring beauty and cultural importance of country music.
All for the Hall Los Angeles is produced by CAA’s Rod Essig, Vector Management’s Ken Levitan, Gary Overton, and BMI’s Jody Williams. The event is made possible by the generosity of AEG Live, The Novo by Microsoft, and official travel partner Southwest. All table purchases are a tax deductible charitable contribution to support the preservation of country music. Tables will be reserved on a first come–first served basis.
