(Radio.com) Talk about wishing we were there take a look at the artists on the roster at Tuesday night's We're All For The Hall benefit concert in Nashville, and see if you don't agree it was nothing short of impressive.

Along with host Keith Urban and Hall of Fame member (and Museum Board President) Vince Gill, the roster included Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Joe Shaver, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Trace Adkins, Rosanne Cash, Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Jessi Colter and Sheryl Crow. (Loretta Lynn was scheduled to perform but withdrew at the last minute due to the illness of a close associate.)

The artists came from across multiple generations but were united under the night's theme "Rebels and Renegades, the Outlaws are IN." Urban described that theme in a statement on his website: "The purity in making music on your own terms to create art in your own way for me, is at the heart of the outlaw spirit," he wrote.

"It's those outlaws that we celebrate this year, who not only made it possible for a guy like me to do what I love, but who play a pivotal role in the strength of country music's diversity." Urban co-founded the benefit concert with Vince Gill in 2009, and this was the fourth annual event. Proceeds support the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and the three previous concerts have so far raised $1.5 million. More including video.
