Tom T. Hall Serenaded by McBride

Tom T. Hall performed some of his best-known hits at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Wednesday night (Aug. 3) but gave the stage to Martina McBride for a rendition of “Harper Valley P.T.A.” Hall is serving as the Hall of Fame’s artist-in-residence in 2005. In between stories and anecdotes about growing up in Olive Hill, Ky., Hall sang “The Year That Clayton Delaney Died,” “Ballad of Forty Dollars,” “Homecoming,” “I Love” and several more. The crowd included publisher Tom Collins, producer Jerry Kennedy, Cowboy Jack Clement, singer-songwriters Mary Gauthier and Todd Snider and Hall of Fame members Jim Foglesong and Jo Walker-Meador.
