Emmylou Harris, Ricky Skaggs To Honor Producer Brian Ahern At Musicians Hall Of Fame Benefit

The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum will host Emmylou Harris, several original members of The Hot Band, Ricky Skaggs and The Whites during a fundraiser December 14 that will honor famed music producer Brian Ahern.

Ahern, a Canadian Country Music Hall of Famer and an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, is known for producing acts such as Harris, Anne Murray, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Glen Campbell, Linda Ronstadt and Black Sabbath.

Proceeds from the event will go towards restoration of Ahern’s Enactron trailer, a mobile recording studio originally designed and built by Ahern in 1972 that is one of the first mobile studios used to record projects on location. The Enactron has a history of over 40 Gold and Platinum albums recorded in the trailer including Bette Midler’s The Rose and Barbra Streisand’s A Star Is Born. The new exhibit is scheduled to open this winter.

Individual tickets are available at musicianshalloffame.com/special-event. Those wishing to sponsor a table can call Tyler at 615-244-3263. If attendance is not possible, donations are appreciated and can be sent to Musicians Hall of Fame POB 23655 Nashville, TN 37202.
