Keith Urban and Vince Gill‘s ‘We’re All For The Hall 2013’ benefit concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on April 16 netted almost $650,000, bringing the event’s four-year total to more than $2 million. The concert brought together nearly 14,000 fans to support the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
In addition to Urban and Gill, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Jessi Colter, Billy Joe Shaver, Hank Williams Jr., Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Brantley Gilbert, Montgomery Gentry Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock performed during the event.
“This year’s All For the Hall show was the biggest and best ever,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “Keith’s theme for the concert, ‘Rebels and Renegades,’ was an inspired celebration of artistic freedom; to have Country Music Hall of Famers Vince, Kris and Willie; legends Rosanne, Jessi, Billy Joe and Hank; and current superstars Keith, Jason, Eric, Tim, Trace, Brantley, Montgomery Gentry, Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock sharing one stage on this museum’s behalf is inspiring and humbling.
“Keith and Vince continue to demonstrate that they are two of country music’s best custodians,” Young continued. “The funds this show generates go directly to support museum exhibits, school and public programs, and the care of our collection, and we are beyond grateful for their efforts.”
The event was sponsored by City National Bank, with additional support from Ford Motor Company/Middle Tennessee Ford Dealers. Nearly 90 corporate and individual partners played a role in the benefit by contributing products, time or funds.
