Country Music Hall Of Fame Residency
Nashville, TN - September 7, 2004
On Tuesday night, Earl Scruggs began his month long residency in the Ford Theater of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. A sold out crowd of about 250 people were treated to classic songs performed by a true living legend. The "Family and Friends Band" was led by Gary Scruggs on bass. John Jorgenson played electric guitar and mandolin, Bryan Sutton and Jon Randall played acoustic guitar, Glen Duncan played fiddle, Rob Ickes was on dobro and John Gardner played drums. The evening's special guest was Travis Tritt who played acoustic guitar and banjo. Just about everyone took a turn at vocals.

Following an intermission and a video montage that featured Mother Maybelle performing "Wildwood Flower" in 1962 with Earl, Mother Maybelle's L-5 was hand delivered to the stage from it's vault in the museum. Earl picked several classic Carter family tunes, and the treasured guitar sounded great.
