Keith Urban Announces 2016 All for the Hall Benefit Concert
Keith Urban is once again taking the lead for the 2016 All for the Hall benefit concert, which is set for Tuesday, April 12 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
This marks the sixth year that Urban and fellow musical director Vince Gill have gathered together an all-star lineup for the special concert event, which raises funds to support the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The theme for this year's benefit show is Mashville: The Music City in 2016, and it features a lineup that emphasizes the diversity of Nashville's musical community.
In addition to Urban and Gill, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Emmylou Harris, Sam Hunt, Jason Isbell, Maddie and Tae and Maren Morris have signed on to perform. Grammy-winning classic rock legend and longtime Nashville transplant Peter Frampton will also be on hand to lend his support.
“Nashville has become a dynamic and diverse musical melting pot,” Urban says in a press release. “While it remains the home of country music, an unbelievably talented community of songwriters, producers, instrumentalists, singers, bands and solo artists are rapidly changing the entire musical landscape in Music City U.S.A. Our sixth All tor the Hall event — Mashville: The Music City in 2016 — will celebrate that!”
“In 2009, Keith Urban and Vince Gill organized a concert to benefit our museum. Now approaching its sixth year, the All for the Hall concerts with Keith and Vince have netted over $2.6 million,” adds museum CEO Kyle Young. “The abiding support of these two country music superstars who continue to act as champions for this museum allows us to further our mission. The proceeds of this fundraiser are especially important as they help to ensure that the history of country music is preserved, shared, and continues to grow and evolve for generations to come.”
This year's All for the Hall event will also feature an original song performed by a group of Middle Tennessee students, who co-wrote the tune with a professional songwriter via the museum's award-winning music education program, Words & Music.
