thanks to the efforts of Urban and a star-studded who's-who of volunteers.
As always, Keith and Vince Gill hosted a memorable evening filled with country stars. “We never know what we’re going to do,” Urban
said at the outset, emphasizing the improvisational nature of the
evening. “We never have on any of the past years, and we’ve always had
the best time.”
Urban has put together all five We’re All for the Hall concerts in
Nashville, hand-picking and personally inviting each artist who appears.
The guests who answered his call this year, all volunteering their
time, ranged from Country Music Hall of Fame members Gill, Reba McEntire
and soon-to-be-inducted Ronnie Milsap to veterans Mary Chapin
Carpenter, Deana Carter and Lee Ann Womack to several of today’s hottest
stars, including Brantley Gilbert, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie
The evening’s theme encouraged performers and songwriters to talk
about the inspiration behind the songs. The motivation for the hits
included heartbreak, headaches, lost love, first dates, cars, breaking
the law, spiritual conflict, TV shows, forgetting a potential paramour’s
last name, pigs who swim and, more than once, Dolly Parton.
