According to information released today by the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN’s second annual “We’re All for the Hall” benefit concert has already raised nearly $450,000, bringing the two-year total to roughly $1 million.
MUSEUM Director KYLE YOUNG said: “This year’s ‘We’re All for the Hall’ show was a one-of-a-kind, only in NASHVILLE evening. In 2009, ‘We’re All for the Hall’ set a new standard for fundraising and event coordination and was a game changer for this museum. The funds raised at this year’s event will again help us to prepare exhibits, present school and public programs, and care for our unduplicated collection.”
He continued: “KEITH URBAN is one of Country music’s greatest caretakers and historians; the theme that he developed for this year’s show, ‘Heroes,’ perfectly embodies what this museum is about. We are overwhelmed by KEITH’S generosity, and are so grateful to him, to our board president, VINCE GILL, and to the amazing line-up of artists and musicians who made the show such a success.”
URBAN added: “This year’s ‘We’re All for the Hall’ benefit, for me, was just over the top. Being up there playing those songs with some of my childhood heroes was like an out of body experience. I cannot thank everyone enough for all that they did to make this show the incredible success that it was – the performers on stage, the people behind the stage, all of our corporate partners and the fans that were there – from the very bottom of my heart, thank you.”
The concert took place before a sold-out crowd of 14,000 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on OCTOBER 5th.
