Keith Urban will be part of a special Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum educational program for selected Metro Nashville high school students on Thursday, September 6. “All Access: Keith Urban” will take place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.
Though the program is not open to the public and the school registration period is closed, the event will be live-streamed at www.countrymusichalloffame.org and www.keithurban.net and educators and fans are encouraged to watch. The program will be moderated by Museum Editor Michael Gray.
“We’re thrilled to offer music and arts students from several Metro Nashville Public Schools the chance to get ‘up close and personal’ with one of country music’s great talents, Keith Urban,” Ali Tonn, the museum’s director of education and public programs, said. “In this special program, students will hear Keith talk about the craft of songwriting, his influences and creative inspirations, seminal moments in his career and more. They will also have the opportunity to ask him questions. This program is the first of its kind for the museum and will serve as a ‘pilot’ of sorts; we hope to be able to offer more All Access educational programs when our museum expansion is completed in 2014.”
Keith has been a generous supporter of the Museum for several years. His annual We’re All for the Hall concerts have raised approximately $1.5 million to date as well as increased awareness of the Museum and its mission to preserve country music.
Educational programs at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum are funded in part by grants from the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission and from the Tennessee Arts Commission through an agreement with the National Endowment for the Arts.
