– Some old school rebels like Willie and Hank Jr. will join Keith Urban for his fourth annual We're All for the Hall concert at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena April 16.
Urban and Vince Gill will be musical directors for the Country Music Hall of Fame benefit. This year's theme is "Rebels and Renegades, the Outlaws are In."
Urban, Gill, Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Kid Rock, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Tim McGraw, Montgomery Gentry, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver and Hank Williams Jr. are slated to perform.
"The purity in making music on your own terms - to create art in your own way - for me, is at the heart of the outlaw spirit," Urban said in a release. "It's those outlaws that we celebrate this year, who not only made it possible for a guy like me to do what I love, but who play a pivotal role in the strength of country music's diversity."
The first three "We're All for the Hall" concerts raised roughly $1.5 million for the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Tickets are $35-$50, and on sale at 10 a.m. central time, Friday, March 1 via Ticketmaster, the Bridgestone Arena box office or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Museum members can take part in a special ticket presale.
