Four-time Grammy Award winner Keith Urban and Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill will return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday, Dec. 5, for Urban’s All for the Hall concert, presented by City National Bank. The concert benefits the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and will include performances by musical directors Urban and Gill, as well as Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Jordan Davis, Patty Griffin, Mickey Guyton, HARDY, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood and other special guests.
This year’s show, themed “The Song Remembers When,” will feature artists performing a song that defines a memorable moment in their life, in addition to one of their own hits. This is Urban’s eighth All for the Hall Nashville concert. Collectively, they have raised $4.3 million in support of the nonprofit museum and its educational programs.
“Getting to curate, create and collaborate on our All for the Hall shows has always been mad fun for me,” said Urban. “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.”
The evening will also feature a performance of an original song by Nashville area high school students who participated in the museum's flagship education program, Words & Music, which pairs a professional songwriter with students to help them to learn how to write song lyrics while developing key skills in language arts.
This All for the Hall concert is presented by City National Bank and produced by Live Nation. Contributing sponsors include the Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association, Chris and Maggie Stewart and the Willard & Pat Walker Charitable Foundation.
About All for the Hall
The All for the Hall campaign began in 2005 when Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill suggested country music artists contribute the proceeds of one annual performance to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Launched in 2007 in New York, the series has alternated between New York and Los Angeles in succeeding years, with Gill and fellow Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris as hosts. With Keith Urban, Gill also co-hosts a recurring All for the Hall concert in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena. In September 2021, the museum hosted the first-ever All for the Hall benefit in Dallas, which is set to return to the city in 2024. To date, All for the Hall concerts have raised nearly $6 million in support of the museum’s educational initiatives, which directly serve more than 130,000 people annually.
About Words & Music
Designed for grades 3-12, Words & Music allows students to tell their stories by writing original song lyrics, while developing language-arts skills. The program embraces and showcases country music’s legacy of songwriting and passes it down to the next generation of writers and thinkers. Through Words & Music, students interact with a professional songwriter, paired with their class, in an engaging performance workshop that transforms students’ lyrics into finished songs. More than 150,000 students have participated in the Words & Music program since its inception in 1979. More information on Words & Music can be found on the museum’s website.
