According to information released by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, Keith Urban’s April 16th All 4 the Hall 2013 benefit concert netted nearly $650,000, bringing the event’s four-year total to more than $2 million.  Nearly 14,000 fans packed Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena to enjoy the one-of-a-kind show.

“This year’s All 4 the Hall show was the biggest and best ever,” said Museum Director Kyle Young.  “Keith’s theme for the concert, ‘Rebels and Renegades,’ was an inspired celebration of artistic freedom; to have Country Music Hall of Famers Vince, Kris and Willie; legends Rosanne, Jessi, Billy Joe and Hank; and current superstars Keith, Jason, Eric, Tim, Trace, Brantley, Montgomery Gentry, Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock sharing one stage on this museum’s behalf is inspiring and humbling.

“Keith and Vince continue to demonstrate that they are two of country music’s best custodians,” Young continued.  “The funds this show generates go directly to support museum exhibits, school and public programs, and the care of our collection, and we are beyond grateful for their efforts.”

Proceeds from All 4 the Hall will be invested in the care of the institution’s rare and unduplicated collection, in its vigorous schedule of school and public programs, and in enhancements for its core exhibition.

All 4 the Hall 2013 was sponsored by City National Bank, with additional support from Ford Motor Company/Middle Tennessee Ford Dealers. Nearly 90 corporate and individual partners, listed below, played a role in the benefit by contributing products, time or funds.
