* Songwriting Legend Dallas Frazier @ CMHoF 12/11 *

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will be presenting songwriting legend DALLAS FRAZIER for a very special performance and in-depth interview this Saturday, December 11, at 1:30pm (CT).

Luckily, the Hall will be streaming live from the Ford Theater for those unable to attend and also archives the Poets & Prophets events for future viewing (if you have a moment, take a look at some of the artists who have participated, it's truly mindblowing).
