Last year, Keith Urban organized the first-ever All for the Hall benefit concert. And it was before that show was even over that Keith announced his plans to do t again in 2010. As last year, all proceeds from the event will go to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Tickets for this year’s concert will go on sale Sept. 17, 2010, and VIP packages are available. The regular ticket prices are between $25 and $35, with the event being held at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville, on Oct. 5, 3020.
Keith has a great line-up joining him for this year’s event. Hall of Fame members Dolly Parton, Charley Pride and Vince Gill will be part of the event, along with Billy Currington, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and John Mayer.
"Thanks to all of the artists who gave so generously of their talents and their time, last year’s concert went well beyond what anyone could’ve ever imaged," Keith reports of the 2009 event, which was the biggest fundraiser in the museum’s history, bringing in close to $500,000. "The awareness and money raised was extraordinary.
"So what do we do for an encore?" he asks. "This year we’ve created a musical theme called ‘Heroes.’ I’ve asked each artist to play one of their favorite songs from one of their country heroes, besides of course, one of their own hits. There’s no doubt that this audience is going to experience a really special night — some of their favorite artists doing songs that they may have never even been played live before … and quite possibly won’t ever again."

I have a feeling this one will sell out fast, and Keith has got another very successful fundraiser on his hands.
I have so many short trips coming up over the next few months, that it doesn’t look as though I’ll make Nashville for this great show on Oct. 5 – but I hope you can! Not only will you see what I’m sure will be an awesome show, but you will be helping out the Country Music Hall of Fame, too!
I need to run. You guys have a great Wednesday. I’ll talk to you real soon!
