London: Country music stars Taylor Swift and Lionel Ritchie turned out to perform at a fundraising concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

The singers were joined by country veterans Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and Kris Kristofferson who all took turns to sing at the All For The Hall benefit in Los Angeles on Thursday night, reported Contactmusic.

Ritchie thrilled the audience with his hit-packed set, which included his anthem `Hello`, while Swift delighted fans with renditions of `15` and `The Best Day` - a track dedicated to her mother.

The event was hosted by Gill, who joked to the crowd about Swift`s ever-increasing popularity.

"We were smart enough to invite the kid... We dig her because she sold all the tickets," Gill said.
