Tom T. Hall Named Hall of Fame Artist in Residence

Tom T. Hall, who retired from live performing in 1997, will play three rare shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in August as the museum’s artist in residence. Known as “The Storyteller,” Hall will be joined by friends and admirers at each show — taking place Aug. 3, 10 and 17 — but the lineup will not be announced in advance. Hall is perhaps best known for writing “Harper Valley P.T.A.” but also notched 21 Top 10 solo hits between 1969 and 1984, including “The Year That Clayton Delaney Died” and “I Love.” Tickets will go on sale to the general public June 17.
