102434268 Keith Urbans Benefit Raises Big Bucks!

[lastfm]Keith Urban[/lastfm]’s second “We’re All for the Hall” benefit concert has netted nearly $450,000 for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. That brings the two-year total to roughly $1 million. The concert, which took place before a sold-out crowd of 14,000 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 5, featured performances from Urban, [lastfm]Vince Gill[/lastfm], [lastfm]Dolly Parton[/lastfm], [lastfm]Charley Pride[/lastfm], [lastfm]John Mayer[/lastfm], [lastfm]Alan Jackson[/lastfm], [lastfm]Martina McBride[/lastfm], [lastfm]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm], [lastfm]Alison Krauss [/lastfm]and [lastfm]Billy Currington[/lastfm]. Each artist shared one of their hits and a song from one of their musical heroes. Keith shares, “This year’s ‘We’re All for the Hall’ benefit, for me, was just over the top. Being up there playing those songs with some of my childhood heroes was like an out of body experience. I cannot thank everyone enough for all that they did to make this show the incredible success that it was – the performers on stage, the people behind the stage, all of our corporate partners and the fans that were there – from the very bottom of my heart, thank you.”

For Urban, the amount raised feels like an incredible victory, especially considering the challenges in the economy.
