The Country Music Hall of Fame’s digital fundraiser, “Big Night (At The Museum)” went down earlier this week, raising more than $743,000 for the museum’s coronavirus relief fund. The night featured artists performing on some historic instruments that were removed from displays while the museum was shut down for the pandemic.
Hosted by Marty Stuart, the night featured performances by Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Rodney Crowell, Carlene Carter, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and more.
Highlights of the night included: Miranda performed John Prine’s “That’s the Way the World Goes ‘Round” on Prine’s guitar; Brad and Dan Tyminski performed Buck Owens’ “Buckaroo;” Tim performed Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” on Keith’s C.W. Parsons guitar; Reba performed an a cappella version of Patsy Cline’s “Sweet Dreams;” Kane Brown performed Randy Travis’ “Three Wooden Crosses” accompanied by the Koa Gibson J-185 guitar Travis favored in his performances and Carlene and Marty performed A.P Carter’s ‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken’.
