The concert, which will take place Feb. 10 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, will raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s education programs.
Urban made the announcement at Bridgestone on Thursday night (Oct. 3) while performing during the Nashville Predators hockey game.
The All for the Hall concert series was launched in 2007 in New York. The series has alternated between New York and Los Angeles every other year, with Country Music Hall of Fame members Vince Gill and fellow Country Music Hall of Famer Emmylou Harris as hosts along with Urban. Gill historically hosts the All for the Hall concert in Nashville.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, through its exhibits and educational programs, shares the country music story, from its folk roots to the present day. This exploration led directly to the concert’s theme, All for the Hall: Under the Influence. During the concert, each participating artist will perform a song that was recorded by an artist who strongly influences them, in addition to one of their own hits.
“Ken Burns’ Country Music] documentary has shown us that we are all very much influenced by our heroes,” Urban said in a statement “So this year’s All for the Hall benefit is our chance to acknowledge those that have been an influence on us and helped shape the artists that we are today.”
Tickets go on sale Oct. 18 at 10 a.m. CT, and can be purchased at LiveNation.com and the Bridgestone Arena box office.
