Tom T. Hall celebrated his 75th birthday with the release of a remake of his 1974 album, Songs of Fox Hollow. (see CW's coverage of “Fox Redux” in our May 30, 2011 issue)
 
Americana notables Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale and others performed their takes on Tom T.’s classics, including “I Love” and “Sneaky Snake” at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, to which Hall belongs.
 
Tom T. had a blast, relished the performances, but turned a bit dour when the subject of his birthday came up.
 
“How's being 75?” a reporter queried.
 
"Feels like s*@!" he said. "I never thought I'd be here this long.”
 
I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs of Fox Hollow is available at songsoffoxhollow.com.
