If you’ve never been to this event or heard of it, We’re All for the Hall benefits the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Funds raised from this event directly benefit the museum’s mission and music efforts surrounding preservation, exhibits and educational programs.
This year the event will kick off at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 16. Four-time GRAMMY Award winner Keith Urban will take the stage with Country Music Hall of Fame member and We’re All for the Hall creator Vince Gill. And the list of scheduled performers doesn’t end there.
Along with Urban and Gill, the line-up includes Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Kid Rock, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Tim McGraw, Montgomery Gentry, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver and Hank Williams, Jr.
Urban shared some of his excitement on Twitter today.

He’s not kidding about being “outlaws” either. This year’s theme is fittingly, “Rebels and Renegades, the Outlaws are IN.”
“The purity in making music on your own terms – to create art in your own way – for me, is at the heart of the outlaw spirit,” Urban said. “It’s those outlaws that we celebrate this year, who not only made it possible for a guy like me to do what I love, but who play a pivotal role in the strength of Country music’s diversity.”

Last year’s concert raised $1.5 million and the museum’s director Kyle Young knows this year will be just as successful.
“I’m certain that this year’s We’re All for the Hall show will not only be an important source of revenue for the museum, but a ‘once-in-a-lifetime, only-in-Nashville’ concert for everyone lucky enough to attend,” Young said.
