BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) | Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum


This was streamed last week. About 1.5 hours. Worth a watch!

In the credits "The Gretsch Company" is listed as one of the co-producers.

From the video's description:

There has never been a night like BIG NIGHT (At the Museum). Troubled times often bring out the best in us all, and these times have called for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to remove some of its most treasured instruments from their cases, and place them in the hands of modern masters for an unprecedented night of music.

BIG NIGHT is an important fundraising event in support of the Museum, a non-profit institution, which has been hit hard financially by the pandemic. During the program, hosted by Country Music Hall of Fame member Marty Stuart, some of country and roots music’s brightest stars render timeless songs using those priceless instruments.

The show features performances from Alison Brown, Kane Brown, Carlene Carter, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Keb’ Mo’, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs, Stuart, Dan Tyminski, The War & Treaty, and Lucinda Williams.

Filmed entirely on location at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, and produced in partnership with YouTube, BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) reveals country music’s essential place inside the great American tapestry.


I visited the HoF a few years ago and could have just stood and stared at the historic instruments for days. I took SO MANY photographs!

As for this special, I will FOR SURE be watching it all (in chunks and pieces).


I have just watched the whole thing and it's amazing. Great music, stories and a history lesson. And it's so lovely and well done. Thanks for posting this!


Thanks for posting this. Very cool show and a great cause.
