The Hall of Fame also will introduce the winner of its First Maine Country Music Hall of Fame Guitar Competition — 17-year-old Owen Field. Field is a student at Hampden Academy and has been playing guitar since he was 8. He will be awarded with the Grand Prize, a Martin Guitar, and will perform the Merle Haggard tune, “Workin’ Man’s Blues,” with the Hall of Fame house band.
