For their fifth annual We're All for the Hall benefit concert in Nashville on Tuesday, Keith Urban and Vince Gill decided to have a little fun with their fellow artists.
Instead of just having them perform their hits, they asked that each of the country stars singing in the show recount the stories behind their songs. "Fans love to hear the story behind the song, and country music is all about stories," Gill told PEOPLE Country. "I love the theme this year."
However, Carrie Underwood wasn't so sure.

This wasn't the first time Darius Rucker was pranked by Brad Paisley. But Tuesday night at the Grand Ole Opry marked the first time one of Paisley's stunts moved him to tears – of joy – and had the audience leaping to its feet.
Midway through his set as the final act on the weekly Tuesday night Opry show, Rucker, 46, good-naturedly replied yes when the announcer asked if he would be open to some questions from the audience, and took queries from two female fans.
Then Opry manager Pete Fisher allowed one more question, and a man in a white hat stood up and grabbed the wireless mike. When the audience recognized Paisley, they burst into delighted applause, and Rucker and his band broke out laughing.

Taylor Swift reached deep into her pockets to help raise money for Nashville flood victims.
The country star, 20, donated $500,000 to flood relief, calling into a star-studded telethon Thursday on a local NBC affiliate station that raised more than $1.7 million.
"It was the craziest thing that I’ve ever seen,” Swift said on the telethon. "I was at my house in Hendersonville, we were staring out the window, thinking it didn't seem like rain. It just seemed like something in a movie. It was really emotional for me because those are the streets I learned to drive on. People's houses are just ruined. It was so heartbreaking to see that in my town, the place that I call home, and the place that I feel most safe. I just send my love to my friends and neighbors who got hit harder than I did."
Swift wasn't the only star to lend their support (and voice) to the event. Vince Gill hosted the telethon, and Keith Urban, Alison Krauss and Darius Rucker performed, worked the phones and pitched in their own donations, too.
