The fifth annual All 4 the Hall benefit, hosted by Keith Urban and Vince Gill, took place May 6 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The event, which featured Carrie Underwood, Lee Ann Womack, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ronnie Milsap, Darius Rucker, Deana Carter, Kip Moore and more, raised $600,000 for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
“Country music is America’s music,” Carrie Underwood told The Tennessean. “[The Country Music Hall of Fame] is the pride of Nashville, and so many people get to go through and see it and learn about people who came before, people they didn’t even know, and feel that much more connected to our music and its artists.”
“Playing tonight was every cliché you can think of,” David Nail said after the show. “It was a dream come true, so surreal to just walk up there and see Vince, who is such a hero of mine, and Keith, who has been so kind. I’m still feeling like a kid at 34 years old living a dream.”
Keith Urban began All 4 the Hall in 2009 to raise funds for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This year’s theme was “Songtellers (A LARGE Intimate Evening).” Each artist performed a classic or a song he or she has recorded and/or written, and shared the story about the song.
