Keith Urban Performs Song Clips For ‘Hall’ Benefit
As reported last week, Keith Urban and Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill will return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday, December 5, for Urban’s “All for the Hall” concert.
The concert benefits the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It will include performances by musical directors Urban and Gill, as well as Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Jordan Davis, HARDY, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, and other special guests.
Keith said of the event, “Getting to curate, create, and collaborate on our All for the Hall shows has always been mad fun for me. 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.”
He added, “I love that Vince will be there with me again this year – and we have another incredible ‘guest list’ and always some surprises too!”
In honor of the coming event, Urban has been posting himself in his home singing some of the songs artists joining him for the event have made famous. In the first post on Instagram, Keith sits on his couch with a guitar, Trisha Yearwood’s “The Song Remembers When.” He wrote, “Our theme for this year’s All For The Hall is ‘The Song Remembers When’ – a song written by Hugh Prestwood and recorded by the incomparable @trishayearwood. Songs bring back so many memories for all of us, fans and artists alike, so I thought it would be great to hear what our special guests choose and for them to share inside stories we’ve never heard before on December 5 at Bridgestone.”
In a second performance post, Urban is in his home studio playing banjo (what he calls a ganjo, which is a banjo with six strings like a guitar) and singing a Brooks & Dunn song. He captioned the clip, “These guys took me out on the road even before I had a record deal, and coming up next month, I get to have the extraordinary full circle moment of being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside Kix. I’m so thrilled to have the legendary @brooksanddunn at All For The Hall this year!”
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. They have raised $4.3 million in support of the nonprofit museum and its educational programs.
