The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum hosted its ninth All for the Hall benefit concert on the road on Tuesday (Sept. 27) at The Novo by Microsoft theater in Los Angeles.

An two-hour program boasted an all-star lineup of Vince Gill, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, James Taylor and Joe Walsh.

Gill has hosted or co-hosted every All for the Hall concert since he came up with the concept, when he began asking artists to contribute a performance to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

“These shows are a gift to me because I get to invite artists I’m crazy about to come and play and sing music,” Gill said. “This night is one of the best we’ve been able to accomplish, because every one of these artists has had a huge impact on my life. It’s not just people who have come before you who have an impact on you. It’s also people who come after you and impact your life too. These great artists do that for me.”

In 2016, All for the Hall events in Nashville and Los Angeles have netted over $900,000 for the Museum’s educational programs.

The evening also included a performance from a group of sixth graders from Los Angeles’ Dorris Place Elementary School. They performed their original song “Far and Wide,” which they penned with singer-songwriter Liz Rose and songwriter-guitarist Phil Barton.
