Some of the biggest names in country music will hit the stage in October to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town are just some of the names who will appear at the All For The Hall show on October 13 at the Sommet Center in Nashville.
The Hall of Fame and Museum is operated by the Country Music Foundation, a non-profit educational organization chartered by the state of Tennessee in 1964. The Museum’s mission is the preservation of the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture.
“It was hard to get some of the more prominent artists to step up,” said Gill, the Museum’s Board President.
“Country music has this ability to keep it relevant to today, without losing the center of its authenticity and integrity,” added Urban. “We can’t move it forward unless we know where it has come from.”
