Keith up for “Tennessean of the Year”

Keith Urban has been named one of the finalists for "Tennessean of the Year" for his contributions to the state and, in particular, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.

Also up for the honor are Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, ACLU Tennessee Director Hedy Weinberg and noted Nashville chef and restaurant owner Randy Rayburn.  Keith helped raise more than $500,000 for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum when he headlined the "We're All for the Hall" benefit concert at the Hall of Fame in October. Keith has pledged to hold a second benefit concert next year. The "Tennessean Of The Year" award winner will be announced on Dec. 27.
