Keith Urban just put his spin on one of Jordan Davis ‘ biggest hits, and it’s all for a good cause. The New Zealand native performed the chorus of Davis’ recent No. 1 hit, “Next Thing You Know,” ahead of the December 5 All for the Hall concert, a star-studded event that is raising money for educational programs at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
“Next Thing You Know, you’re headed to see Jordan Davis and many more at Bridgestone Arena on December 5!” Urban tweeted. “All For The Hall tickets are on sale now.”

Urban will host this year’s All for the Hall alongside Vince Gill. The theme of this year’s show is “The Song Remembers When,” with each artist performing a song that has a particularly special memory for them, along with one of their own hits. In honor of the upcoming event, Urban previously covered Trisha Yearwood‘s “The Song Remembers When.”
“Our theme for this year’s All For The Hall is ‘The Song Remembers When’ – a song written by Hugh Prestwood and recorded by the incomparable [Trisha Yearwood],” Urban tweeted, showing a clip of him performing one of her early hit singles.
“Songs bring back so many memories for all of us, fans and artists alike, so I thought it would be great to hear what our special guests choose and for them to share inside stories we’ve never heard before on December 5th at Bridgestone,” he added.

Urban also performed Brooks & Dunn‘s “Brand New Man,” praising the duo for taking him out on their Neon Circus & Wild West Show in 2001, long before Urban had much success in country music.
“These guys took me out on the road even before I had a record deal, and coming up next month I get to have the extraordinary full circle moment of being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside Kix,” Urban said. ” “I’m so thrilled to have the legendary [Brooks & Dunn] at All For The Hall this year!”

Other performers already announced for All for the Hall include Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Patty Griffin, Mickey Guyton, HARDY and Patty Loveless, with more artists expected to be announced in the near future.
This is Urban’s eighth All for the Hall event. To date, the Grand Ole Opry member has helped raised more than $4.3 million to help support the Country Music Hall of Fame through All For The Hall.
“Getting to curate, create and collaborate on our All for the Hall shows has always been mad fun for me,” Urban says. “There’s so much love and respect for all the work the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum does, not only from the artists and the industry, but the audience too. I love that Vince will be there with me again this year – and we have another incredible ‘guest list’ and always some surprises too! LET’S ROLL.”
