Keith Urban’s Year in Pictures: All for the Hall Concert
Concert co-hosts Vince Gill and Keith Urban perform together at the 2009 All for the Hall concert benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The show also featured Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town. Keith is already planning the second annual All for the Hall concert, to be held later this year.
It was a difficult thing creating a list of performers, because I believe any artist I reached out to would have said yes. Every artist I know is passionate about the Hall and is more than willing to participate in something like that. It was a bit like making a wedding guest list! What's the criteria? So I simply made criteria for the first one based on all the artists who'd been out touring with us, and a couple who I've guested with -- like Brad, I have a song with him ['Start a Band']. That was an easy way to pick everybody, but I sure missed out on a lot of people I desperately wanted to play. The bottom line is we could've easily had 40 artists play that night. But I also knew immediately that I wanted to do it again, and I have quite a wish list for this year. I'm about to start making calls to the artists for this year. And we'll keep it diverse and hopefully give each year a theme. I've got an idea for a theme for this year that we'll present shortly!
