Blake Shelton is preparing to welcome friends, family, fans, and fellow artists to his home state of Oklahoma on Saturday, March 30, for a special All for the Hall concert. With it being just a few weeks out, the country star took to social media to clear up some confusion regarding what the special event will entail. 

“I think people have been a little bit confused about it. Even my own friends and family have been,” he admitted in a video on X, formerly known as Twitter. 

What Can Fans Expect From The Evening?

For starters, the Grand Ole Opry member confirmed that while the upcoming All for the Hall concert will be benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and its education programs, it will not include any kind of awards ceremony. Instead, it will be what Shelton describes as a “huge fun jam night.” The “Austin” singer will be headlining the show at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and several other artists will be joining him on stage to perform a few of their songs as well. 

Who Will Be Joining Shelton On Stage?

So far, we know that those joining Shelton include Country Music Hall of Fame member Ronnie Dunn, Tony and Emmy Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth, ACM and CMA nominee Wade Hayes, and beloved songwriters/performers The Swon Brothers. There will likely be even more performers who have yet to be announced. 

“It’s just a fun party full of music. It’s not some kind of a ceremony or weird dinner or something like that,” he continued. “I know these things can be confusing, but because I’ve had so many people ask me what it is, I thought I’d hop on here and clear the air. It’s going to be one of the most epic nights of my life.”

The upcoming show marks the first All for the Hall concert that will take place in the state of Oklahoma. 

“We’re working hard to put this thing together. It is a benefit for the Country Music Hall of Fame, which we’re excited about, but for you guys coming to the show, it’s just going to be one incredible epic concert. It’s just going to be one great Oklahoma artist after another. So you don’t want to miss this thing. See you guys there. March 30th, Tulsa, Oklahoma.”

What Is The All For The Hall Concert Series?

Additionally, Gill co-hosts a recurring All for the Hall concert in Nashville with Keith Urban at Bridgestone Arena. In September 2021, the museum held its inaugural All for the Hall benefit in Dallas, scheduled to return in 2024. Together, All for the Hall concerts have raised over $6.6 million.

The idea behind All for the Hall began back in 2005 when Vince Gill, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, suggested country music artists donate the proceeds from one annual performance to support the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Since its inception in 2007 in New York, the series, hosted by Gill and Emmylou Harris, has alternated between New York and Los Angeles. Additionally, Gill co-hosts a recurring All for the Hall concert with Keith Urban at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. In September 2021, the museum hosted its inaugural All for the Hall benefit in Dallas, which is scheduled to return in 2024. Collectively, All for the Hall concerts have raised over $6.6 million.

Shelton’s All for the Hall concert comes at the very end of his headline Back To The Honky Tonk Tour. The 17-date trek runs through March 29 with special guests Dustin Lynch and Emily Ann Roberts.
