Jewel Plans $1 Sale of Her Album to Benefit Hall of Fame

Jewel will be selling copies of her first country album, Perfectly Clear, for a minimum $1 donation to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. The 24-hour sale will be available at her official Web site on Nov. 28, the day after Thanksgiving. A shipping and handling charge will be added, but all proceeds from the donation will benefit the museum’s All for the Hall fundraising campaign which was launched by Vince Gill in 2005. In explaining her desire to assist the museum, Jewel said,  “I have come full circle with my music.  It was country music that I grew up on, so to be embraced by the country music community this year has been a great feeling.” Museum director Kyle Young noted, “The proceeds that Jewel and her fans are generously donating will help to fund the storage and preservation of the museum’s unduplicated collection of country music artifacts and assist our staff’s efforts to make the collection available to the largest possible audience through exhibits, programs, books and recordings.” Released in June, Perfectly Clear debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart.
