With its digital fundraiser, BIG NIGHT (At the Museum), set to premiere next Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum announced today a special, live event that will stream 30 minutes prior to the fundraiser’s premiere. Hosted by Tenille Townes, with special guest Carly Pearce, Countdown to BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) will be livestreamed exclusively on the museum’s YouTube channel at 7:30 pm CDT on Oct. 28.
During Countdown to BIG NIGHT (At the Museum), Townes and Pearce will each perform a song associated with an artist who influenced them. These tribute performances by Townes and Pearce reflect the broader aim of BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) — to celebrate country music history and the music itself, which has endured across many generations.
Countdown to BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) will also kick off an auction, in which viewers can bid on a Gibson SJ-200 guitar signed by all artists performing on BIG NIGHT (At the Museum). The auction closes at 5 pm CDT on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020. There will be other surprises announced throughout the countdown program for those who tune in.
