Stefani was the only artist not announced as part of the lineup.

“Hey, everybody, say hello to my personal favorite new Oklahoman!” Shelton said when introducing Stefani. The two sang “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere,” plus their new “Purple Irises,” duet, from Stefani’s next album.

“We love this song so much,” Shelton said when the song was released. “It’s a song Gwen wrote with a couple of friends of hers, and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. She knew there was something different about it and asked me to come in and sing with her. My longtime producer, Scott Hendricks, produced it, and Gwen’s been wanting to work with him for a long time now, and it’s turned into this really cool and different song that can live anywhere.”


Absent from the All for the Hall roster was another Oklahoma artist, namely Toby Keith, who passed away in February. Gill dedicated “Go Rest High On That Mountain” to Keith, who Shelton recently revealed wanted to be part of All for the Hall.

“Toby wanted to do it,” Shelton revealed on The Big 615, also explaining how artists like Keith, Reba McEntire and others from Oklahoma, inspired him and his own career.

“Growing up in Oklahoma, that was part of the drive that gave me the confidence to come to Nashville, was knowing that Reba, she’s from like 20 miles from here,” Shelton shared. “I’m talking about, she came from the middle of nowhere. And she’s the biggest star in country music. It was really inspiring. And I remember when Toby came out, being from Oklahoma, and had ‘Shoulda Been a Cowboy,’ and my mom saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I saw that guy in Oklahoma City last year.”

Shelton’s All for the Hall came only a few months after Gill and  Keith Urban hosted one in Nashville in December, raising more than $900,000.

“It speaks volumes when an artist of Blake Shelton’s stature supports our museum’s educational programs so wholeheartedly and so generously,” Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, said. “We’re immensely grateful not only to Blake but also to Ronnie, Kristin, Wade, the Swon Brothers and others for giving their ‘all for the Hall,’ and for helping us continue to educate our many audiences about the enduring cultural value of country music.”
