Keith Urban is the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry! A surprise invitation came from Vince Gill at the All for the Hall concert last night. Vince gave him a black bag as a gift, in which Keith found a Grand Ole Opry microphone. "This means the world to me", said Urban. A special induction to the Opry family will take place on April 21.

All for the Hall is a benefit concert, which Keith Urban annually holds to raise funds for the Country Music Hall of Fame. This year's line-up included Alabama, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Diamond Rio, The Band Perry and the Oak Ridge Boys. Another highlights of the night, apart from Urban's Opry invitation, was a surprise appearance by legends Merle Haggard and Don Williams.
