The fifth annual “We’re All for the Hall” benefit concert is set to hit the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tuesday, May 6.
Proceeds from this event go toward the Country Music Hall of Fame’s preservation efforts, exhibits, and educational events. Previously, this concert has raised more that $2 million for this cause.
The theme for this year’s show is “Songtellers (A LARGE Intimate Event)” and will feature artists such as Brantley Gilbert, Brett Eldredge, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, David Nail, Deana Carter, Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore, Lee Ann Womack with Buddy Miller, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Reba McEntire and Ronnie Milsap who will perform either a song they’ve recorded or written or a classic. They will then tell a story about the song, explain why they recorded it and what it means to them.
Both Urban and Gill stress their gratitude and appreciation toward Nashville and the Country Music Hall of Fame in an interview on CMT.com, saying how much it means to them.
“For me it’s my little way of giving back to this genre really that’s just given me my whole life,” he said during Monday’s interview. “I met my wife because of playing country music. I live in Nashville because of it. Our two girls were born here in Nashville because of it. So, really, country music’s given me my whole life. This is my way of saying thanks,” Urban said in the interview.
