Feb. 11, 2020 – Last night, Keith Urban along with Ingrid Andress, Luke Combs, Lauren Daigle, Brothers Osborne, Carly Pearce, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Tenille Townes, Tanya Tucker and Morgan Wallen took to the Bridgestone Arena stage for All for the Hall: Under the Influence, a one-night-only event benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s education programs. Last night’s All for the Hall: Under the Influence raised more than $800,000, making it the largest All for the Hall Nashville to date. Yesterday was the seventh Urban-hosted benefit for the museum.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, through its exhibits and educational programs, shares the ever-evolving country music story, from its folk roots to the present day. Throughout this narrative, the inspiration that artists draw from their musical forbearers is tangible. This exploration of how music inspires and influences later generations of artists led directly to the concert’s theme, All for the Hall: Under the Influence. During the concert, each participating artist performed a song that was recorded by an artist who strongly influences them, in addition to one of their own hits. Performances included:
- Keith Urban – “Wasted Time” and “Blue Bayou”
- Ingrid Andress – “More Hearts Than Mine” and “Country Roads”
- Luke Combs – “Even Though I’m Leaving” and “Brand New Man”
- Lauren Daigle – “You Say” and “Killing Me Softly”
- Brothers Osborne – “Ain’t My Fault” and “The Bottle Let Me Down”
- Carly Pearce – “Every Little Thing” and “Man, I Feel Like a Woman”
- Blake Shelton – “Ole Red” and “Dallas”
- Chris Stapleton – “Millionaire” and “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground”
- Tenille Townes – “Somebody’s Daughter” and “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
- Tanya Tucker – “Bring My Flowers Now” and a medley including “Blue Kentucky Girl” and “Stand By Your Man”
- Morgan Wallen – “Whiskey Glasses” and “Take It Easy”
The evening also included a performance from students from Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School in Nashville who went through the museum’s Words & Music program. Sixteen students performed the song “Just Try,” written by Pearl-Cohn senior Teyonce McHaney, alongside songwriter Mike Hicks. Words & Music, the museum’s cornerstone school program, gives students an opportunity to write song lyrics collaboratively with local professional songwriters.
