CMHoF Forum To Salute Sarah Trahern

Sarah Trahern

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will present an interview with Great American Country (GAC) executive Sarah Trahern, honoring her at the fifth annual Louise Scruggs Memorial Forum on Monday, Dec. 12, 2011, at 6 p.m. in the Ford Theater. A reception will follow the program, which is free and open to the public.

The forum interview with Trahern, whose television career has taken her from the Democratic National Convention in 1988 to the White House in 2009, will be hosted by Vice President of Museum Programs Jay Orr. As he tracks her career arc, Orr will talk with Trahern about her memories of the various programs, producers, artists, songs, issues, opportunities and challenges she has met throughout her near 25-year career. The interview will be enhanced by video clips and vintage photos from the museum’s archives, Trahern’s personal collection and other sources.

Made possible by the Gibson Foundation, the forum was established in 2007 to explore issues related to the business side of the music industry and annually recognizes an individual who represents a legacy like that of pioneering agent-manager Louise Scruggs, wife and savvy business partner of Country Music Hall of Fame member Earl Scruggs.

Forum honorees are chosen by representatives of both the Gibson Foundation and the museum and receive final approval from the Scruggs family. Previous honorees are Denise Stiff, Liz Thiels, Mary Martin and Bonnie Garner.
