From Tennessean music writer Peter Cooper:
With Marty Stuart's Sparkle & Twang exhibit as the sparkling, twanging background, Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Rodney Crowell, Mike Farris and other artists paid tribute to Porter Wagoner on Wednesday night at the Tennessee State Museum.
"We've been so inspired by him for so long," said Emmylou, who sang three Porter songs with Buddy before inviting Jim up for a resplendent version of "Satisfied Mind."
The event was a kickoff to the Americana Music Conference and a chance for Porter's friends, family and fans to remember the Wagonmaster
