Tom T. Hall Birthday Celebration & "I Love" Album Release

What a magical night.  What an absolute honor.  Last evening, Red Beet Records and the Country Music Hall of Fame hosted an album release of a re-make of Tom T. Hall's 1970's childrens music. 
The new album "I Love: The Songs from Fox Hollow", produced by Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, is a celebration of the wonderful songs from years ago.  The new recordings boast performances by Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Tommy Cash, Lloyd Green, Duane Eddy, Lim Lauderdale, Bobby Bare, and many more.  And all were on hand last night to perform these wonderful songs at The Country Music Hall of Fame's Ford Theatre.
Scotty Huff was invited to supplement the band on trumpet. "Man, what an honor to stand beside Duane Eddy and Lloyd Green, and listen to their amazing tone and musicality. And they must be the nicest guys in the word," shared Huff.
Tom T. was there with his wife "Miss Dixie."  His performances were as magnificent as you would imagine a country legend would deliver.
After the show, all enjoyed some cake in celebration of Tom T.'s 75th birthday.
Get your copy of "I Love" from Red Beet Records, and enjoy the magic of these songs and performances.
Happy Birthday Tom T.
