It was announced today (4/16), that last week’s, “WE’RE ALL FOR THE HALL” benefit concert for THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, raised $465,000. That brings the event’s three-year total to approximately $1.5 million. Nearly 14,000 fans packed the BRIDGESTONE ARENA in NASHVILLE for a sold-out show.
CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN hosted the event, performed, and also played with every act. In addition to URBAN, other performers included HALL OF FAME ambassador VINCE GILL, RASCAL FLATTS, LADY ANTEBELLUM, THE BAND PERRY, LITTLE BIG TOWN, THOMPSON SQUARE, PISTOL ANNIES, ALISON KRAUS & UNION STATION, ALABAMA, THE OAK RIDGE BOYS, DIAMOND RIO and the BLUE SKY RIDERS.
“This museum, and Country music in general, could not ask for greater ambassadors and caretakers than VINCE GILL and KEITH URBAN,” said Museum Dir. KYLE YOUNG. “They have such a reverence for this music’s history, and are passionate about its future. The first WE’RE ALL FOR THE HALL benefit, in 2009, was a game changer for this museum in terms of both fundraising and awareness, and this year’s show, the third, has again helped take this institution to another level.”
