The recently-created Outlaw Music Hall of Fame is holding a major concert event Oct. 25-27 featuring three days of performances by artists like Shooter Jennings, Wayne Mills, Bridgitte London, Stone the Crow, Chris Gantry, Billy Don Burns, and many more.
Held at the Chopper Hill Rally site in Altamont, Tenn., the show will also be available to fans around the world on pay-per-view for a minimum donation of one dollar. All money raised will go to develop the headquarters of the Outlaw Music Hall of Fame in Lynchburg, Tenn., which is slated to open in the spring of 2014.
The weekend will also include a songwriters in-the-round on Oct. 26 featuring Chris Gantry, Steve Young, James Austin, Tom Ghent, Burns, Billy Gant, and a special surprise guest. The Hall of Fame’s inaugural inductees will also be announced during the evening.
The new Outlaw Hall of Fame will be dedicated to musicians and songwriters whose work best exemplifies the qualities of the Outlaw movement of the 1970s. Placing the spotlight firmly on the roots of country, the Hall will educate the public about Outlaw country, memorialize founders of the genre like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Jessi Colter, and recognize current Outlaw artists, providing a platform for them and the independent record labels who give them a home. The museum will be housed in a 5000 square-foot facility on the town square in Lynchburg, Tenn. and will include interactive displays and a studio for live internet broadcasts. A concert series showcasing independent roots country artists will also be held each April-Nov.
