KEITH URBAN’S THIRD ANNUAL
WE’RE ALL FOR THE HALL BENEFIT CONCERT
FOR THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM
RETURNS TO THE BRIDGESTONE ARENA APRIL 10!
2005 CMA Entertainer of the Year
and four-time Grammy Award winner Keith
Urban, this year joined by an all-star lineup of some of country music’s
most loved groups, will return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday,
April 10, for a concert to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame®
and Museum. Reserved seating tickets, which are priced at a family friendly $25
and $35 (does not include Ticketmaster surcharge), are on sale now at ticketmaster.com. A limited number of VIP ticket packages will also go on sale
on January 27 at Ticketmaster.com.
The show—which will feature
performances from an all-star line-up including Urban, Country Music Hall of
Fame members Vince Gill and Alabama, Alison Krauss & Union
Station, The Band Perry, Blue Sky Riders, Diamond Rio, Exile, Lady Antebellum,
Little Big Town, The Oak Ridge Boys,
Pistol Annies, Rascal Flatts and
Thompson Square—again promises to be a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime
evening of music, friendship and camaraderie.
“My goal for the concert, is really the same as the halls’," said Urban. “To help
country fans connect the dots – to find out where their music came from, how
it’s evolved (and is still evolving) and to discover the artists that have influenced
their favorite artists. Country music is like a big beautiful strange
family tree and nowhere is that more honored than at the Country Music Hall Of
Fame and Museum."
for the Hall is the museum’s first-ever non-bricks-and-mortar fundraising
initiative. The campaign addresses
the not-for-profit educational institution’s need for long-term financial
security and provides a safety net for its work. Through ongoing exhibit schedules,
scholarly publications and hundreds of school and family programs annually, the
museum teaches its audiences about the enduring beauty and cultural
importance of country music.
Museum Board President Gill created and has led the institution’s All for the Hall fundraising initiative
“The first two We’re All for the Hall concerts have been landmarks for this
institution,” said 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.”
