Keith Urban Helps All 4 The Hall Raise $600,000

The fifth annual All 4 the Hall benefit, hosted by Keith Urban and Vince Gill, raised $600,000 for the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The evening, held at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, featured performances from Urban, Gill, Brantley Gilbert, Brett Eldredge, Carrie Underwood, David Nail, Deana Carter, Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore, Lee Ann Womack with Buddy Miller, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Reba McEntire and Ronnie Milsap.

Urban, who launched the HOF benefit in 2009, said it's his way of giving back.

"I grew up in the genre," he said. "My whole childhood was spent traveling to different countries and festivals, and competing in these festivals. I was hanging out with kids whose parents had joined these country music clubs, like my parents had joined country music clubs, so it was my whole life. And then to come to Nashville and have the life I've been able to have here, is such a blessing. I was looking for a way I could say thank you."
