Keith Urban will have a hefty sum for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Nashville's Tennessean says at the end of Tuesday's benefit concert Keith told the crowd that they'd raised $600,000. 

The show featured a mix of stars, from the Hall's newest inductee, Ronnie Milsap, to the reigning CMA New Artist of the Year, Kacey Musgraves.  The material ranged from old to new as well. 

Urban and his co-host, Vince Gill, opened the show with the Everly Brothers' classic, "Wake Up Little Susie," while Lee Ann Womack and Kip Moore both debuted new songs.  Carrie Underwood performed one of her hits along with Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You." 

Reba McEntire, David Nail, and Darius Rucker were also among the 16 stars who took part in the event.
