Four-time Grammy Award recipient Keith Urban and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Vince Gill are set to return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday, December 5, for Urban’s annual All for the Hall concert, generously presented by City National Bank.
This highly-anticipated event aims to support the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and will showcase performances by musical directors Urban and Gill, along with an incredible lineup of artists, including Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Jordan Davis, Patty Griffin, Mickey Guyton, HARDY, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, and other surprise guests.
“All For The Hall is BACK !!!! We’ll see you at @bridgestonearenaofficial December 5th AND we just found out Patty Loveless will also be joining in on the fun!” Urban wrote on social media.
The theme for this year’s show is “The Song Remembers When,” where artists will perform a song that holds a special place in their life’s memorable moments, alongside one of their own hits.
This marks Urban’s eighth All for the Hall Nashville concert, and collectively, these events have raised an impressive $4.3 million in support of the nonprofit museum and its educational initiatives.
Keith Urban shared his enthusiasm, saying, “Getting to curate, create, and collaborate on our All for the Hall shows has always been mad fun for me. There’s so much love and respect for all the work the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum does, not only from the artists and the industry, but the audience too. I love that Vince will be there with me again this year – and we have another incredible ‘guest list’ and always some surprises too! LET’S ROLL.”
Tickets for this remarkable event will be available for purchase starting on Friday, September 15, at 10 a.m. Central through LiveNation.com. VIP ticketing packages, which offer premium seating, meet-and-greet opportunities, and more, will also be offered.
Additionally, the evening will feature a performance of an original song by local Nashville high school students who have taken part in the museum’s flagship education program, Words & Music. This program pairs professional songwriters with students to help them learn how to write song lyrics while fostering essential language arts skills.
The All for the Hall concert is proudly presented by City National Bank and produced by Live Nation. Key sponsors include the Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association, Chris and Maggie Stewart, and the Willard & Pat Walker Charitable Foundation.
The last time the event took place was in February of 2020. In 2020, the seventh annual All For The Hall benefit concert featured performances from Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Blake Shelton, Tanya Tucker, Chris Stapleton, Lauren Daigle, Ingrid Andress and Tenille Townes.
Previous performers include Reba Mcentire, Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Brantley Gilbert, Brett Eldredge, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Willie Nelson, Lady A, Alabama, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, and many more.
