Keith Urban Bringing All for the Hall Benefit Concert Back to Nashville in 2020
Keith Urban is bringing a long-running Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum benefit concert back to Nashville in 2020. The country superstar announced on Thursday night (Oct. 4) that the All for the Hall event will return to Music City in February.
The 2020 All for the Hall benefit concert, dubbed All for the Hall: Under the Influence, is scheduled for Feb. 10 at Music City's Bridgestone Arena. In addition to Urban, the lineup already includes Chris Stapleton, Tanya Tucker, Blake Shelton, Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Tenille Townes, Ingrid Andress and Lauren Daigle, with additional artists to be announced. Each artist will perform one of their own hits and, in accordance with the evening's theme, a song by an artist who strongly influenced them.
“Ken Burns’ [Country Music] documentary has shown us that we are all very much influenced by our heroes. So, this year’s All for the Hall benefit is our chance to acknowledge those that have been an influence on us and helped shape the artists that we are today," Urban says. "Somehow these shows always seem to take on a life of their own. They’re incredibly fun to do, and you never quite really know what’s gonna happen. So we’ll roll with it and turn Bridgestone into one huge club!"
Tickets for the 2020 All for the Hall benefit concert will go on sale on Oct. 18 at 10AM CT, via LiveNation.com and the Bridgestone Arena box office. VIP packages will be available in addition to regular tickets. Visit CountryMusicHallOfFame.org for more details.
All for the Hall, launched in 2005, has, to date, raised $3.4 million to support the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's educational programs. The campaign began after Vince Gill, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, suggested that he and his fellow country artists donate proceeds from a show to the organization. The very first All for the Hall show took place in New York City in 2007.
Gill and Emmylou Harris have continued to host All for the Hall shows in New York and Los Angeles, Calif., most recently in September in LA. The first Nashville-based All for the Hall event took place in 2009, but the show has not been in Music City since 2016. Historically, Gill has co-hosted the Nashville shows with Urban.
