Urban Plans Hall Benefit [updated]

[New on-sale date] Keith Urban and an all-star lineup of his friends will descend upon Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Wednesday, January 18 for his third “We’re All For The Hall” concert benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Tickets go on sale Nov. 4, Dec. 2 and are priced from $25-35.

In addition to performances from CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Urban, the show will feature guest performances by Vince Gill, Rascal Flatts, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Little Big Town, and the Oak Ridge Boys. More artists are expected to be announced later.

“The support that this event has received over the past couple of years, I think, really speaks to the commitment to and the importance of preserving the past and protecting the future of country music,” says Urban. “We’ll have some great bands performing—part of our ‘All Together Now’ theme for the night—an especially fitting concept that we hope will capture the spirit of the evening.”

The “All For The Hall” initiative addresses the museum’s long-term financial needs, providing a safety net for its work.

“The first two ‘We’re All for the Hall’ concerts have been landmarks for this institution,” says Museum Director Kyle Young. “They have been the most successful fundraisers in the museum’s history, together raising roughly $1 million. And they have not only set a new standard for fundraising and event coordination, but also brought together an entire community and helped us to see what can be done by individuals when there is a collective passion for a cause.

“It is beyond gratifying” continues Young, “when the artists we love and chronicle, artists like Vince and Keith, offer us their leadership and financial support. Keith Urban grew up in a home where country music was cherished. He knows the music’s history and its heroes. He is one of country music’s greatest champions and he is one of this museum’s heroes.”
