Country Music Hall Of Fame® And Museum Announces Lineup For All For The Hall Dallas Benefit In September

June 27, 2024

DALLAS, Texas June 27, 2024 –The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s lineup for the upcoming All for the Hall Dallas benefit will feature hit recording artists Clint Black, Robert Earl Keen, Scotty McCreery and Carly Pearce in a Nashville-style “guitar pull” on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at Gilley’s Dallas.

The two-day musical event, which supports the nonprofit museum’s education programs, will kick off with a performance by Grammy-nominated trio Midland on Monday, Sept. 9, at a Patron Party at the home of Anne and Steve Stodghill, honorary co-chairs of the event. Previously announced performer Vince Gill is no longer able to attend the headline event. Hosted tables and tickets for the event can be purchased here.

This is the second time All for the Hall will be held in Dallas. The inaugural event in September 2021 featured Brooks & Dunn and Trisha Yearwood, and raised more than $630,000 in support of the museum’s educational initiatives, including its flagship Words & Music program. The program, which is provided within the Dallas Independent School District and beyond, promotes language arts by pairing professional songwriters with school classrooms to create original songs.

This year’s All for the Hall Dallas leaders include Lisa Arpey and Vikram Agrawal as chairs, the Stodghills serving as honorary chairs and Carri Hyde as a production partner. Annabel Morgan and Emily Hyde are serving as Troubadour Dallas Ambassadors co-chairs, engaging next generation patrons in All for the Hall.

The event’s inaugural chairs include Katy and Lawrence Bock; Terri and Kurt Johnson; Jonika and Corky Nix; Sunie and Steve Solomon; and Anne and Steve Stodghill. Entertainment producers include Rod Essig (CAA), Ken Levitan (Vector Management), Clarence Spalding (Maverick) and Jody Williams (Jody Williams Songs).

About All for the Hall
The All for the Hall campaign began in 2005 when Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill suggested country music artists contribute the proceeds of one annual performance to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Launched in 2007 in New York, the series has alternated between New York and Los Angeles in succeeding years, with Gill and fellow Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris as hosts. With Keith Urban, Gill also co-hosts a recurring All for the Hall concert in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena. In September 2021, the museum hosted the first ever All for the Hall benefit in Dallas. In 2024, Blake Shelton hosted an All for the Hall benefit in Oklahoma. Funds raised from All for the Hall events support the museum’s educational initiatives, which directly served more than 230,000 people last year though in-person and virtual programs.

About Words & Music
Designed for grades 3-12, Words & Music allows students to tell their stories by writing original song lyrics, while developing language-arts skills. The program embraces and showcases country music’s legacy of songwriting and passes it down to the next generation of writers and thinkers. Through Words & Music, students interact with a professional songwriter, paired with their class, in an engaging performance workshop that transforms students’ lyrics into finished songs. More than 160,000 students have participated in the Words & Music program since its inception in 1979. More information on Words & Music can be found on the museum’s website.
