Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum hosted an online fundraiser via YouTube on Oct. 28 that featured a who’s who of country stars.
Big Night (At the Museum) paired country music stars with historic instruments for a one-of-a-kind night of music. Artists taking part included Alison Brown, Kane Brown, Brad Paisley, Dan Tyminski, Carlene Carter, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Keb Mo, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and The War and Treaty.
During the show, Ashley McBryde paid tribute to Loretta Lynn by singing “You’re Lookin’ at Country,” while playing Loretta’s 1956 Gibson J-50 guitar. Loretta scored a Top 5 hit with the tune in 1971.
During the free concert, viewers were encouraged to donate to the Museum through YouTube Giving. More than $500,000 has been raised.
