This year’s theme Rebels and Renegades, the Outlaws are IN will feature performances from an all-star line-up including Keith, Vince, 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. It promises to be yet another in a line of one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime concert events highlighting great music, friendship and camaraderie.
“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,” said Keith. “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.”
Museum Board President Vince Gill created All for the Hall, an artist-led fundraising initiative for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Funds raised through these events directly support the museum’s mission and underwrite preservation efforts, exhibitions and educational programs that teach audiences about the enduring beauty and cultural importance of country music.
“The first three We’re All for the Hall concerts raised approximately $1.5 million,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “Those dollars go toward our operating expenses, directly funding the care of our collection, exhibitions, programs and more. We are beyond grateful to Keith Urban and Vince Gill. They are two of country music’s greatest stewards and ambassadors, and we are honored by what they have done for this institution. 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.” Continue Reading
