Little Big Town is one of the acts set to perform at Keith Urban’s third annual All For The Hall benefit concert tonight, April 10, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The concert will benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All For The Hall Fund, which goes towards helping the Museum with its mission to preserve the legacy of country music. Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman remembers her first visit to the Museum as a teenager.
“I think the Country Music Hall of Fame is so important to the whole world of country music,” she said. “When I was 14, we took a family trip and came up to the Hall of Fame. It’s one of the family trips in my whole life that stands out the most. I know what I wore and everything. It just was so special and so important.”
At 14, Kimberly had no way of knowing she would one day be performing with her bandmates to raise funds for the Museum, but realizes the impact that first visit had on her life as a musician. She supports the Museum’s goal of preserving the history country music for future generations.
“Country music is important, not only to our community but to families all over our country who want to see what Nashville is all about and what Nashville history is all about,” she said. “And now that the Hall of Fame is amazing, it’s incredible, one of the best museums I’ve ever been in, I think it’s so important that we continue our history and that we show the rest of the world what Nashville is all about.”
Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Alabama, Alison Krauss & Union Station, The Band Perry, Blue Sky Riders, Diamond Rio, Exile, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, The Oak Ridge Boys, Pistol Annies, Rascal Flatts and Thompson Square are all scheduled to perform at the benefit.
