2017 opened with a bang for Keith Urban as he celebrated the New Year in Nashville with an historic outdoor New Year’s Eve concert in front of nearly 100,000 and even though released in 2016, RIPCORD continues its incredible run. It was recently certified platinum (the second artist to achieve that status in 2016). The album produced Urban’s 22nd #1 song, his 6th consecutive, with “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
A groundbreaking album for Urban, RIPCORD marked the second time that one of his albums debuted simultaneously atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia. He is the only male Country artist to achieve this mark, not just once, but twice. The album thus far, has produced four #1 songs including “Wasted Time,” which moved Urban to #8 on Billboard’s All-time Country Airplay Chart, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and “Break On Me.” It leaves Urban’s streak as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart (37) well in tact - a streak that started in August of 2000.
Following the breakthrough success of RIPCORD, which has continued worldwide, Urban took to the road for his ‘ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016,’ his first major concert tour in two years. The tour played more than seventy shows on four continents, in front of more than a million people, further solidifying Urban’s already established reputation as one of the most electrifying and dynamic live performers. It continues later this year as the “KU, ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2017” lands at fairs and festivals in the U.S.
Besides his four Grammy Awards, Urban has won ten Country Music Association Awards, eleven Academy of Country Music Awards, a People’s Choice and an American Music Award and has been nominated for a Golden Globe. He is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Urban’s reputation as a premier songwriter, vocalist, musician and virtuoso guitarist has afforded him the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Steven Tyler, Miranda Lambert, John Mellencamp, Alicia Keys, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift, Vince Gill and Eric Church.
Urban has long supported numerous charities. His “All For The Hall” benefit concerts for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum© have raised over $2.6 million. He is the first Ambassador of the CMA Foundation, is an advisory board member at the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and is a longtime supporter of The Mr. Holland’s Opus Fund and The Grammy Foundation. In 2013, he introduced his new URBAN™ Guitar Collection via HSN, proceeds of which benefit both the Grammy Foundation and Mr. Holland’s Opus Fund.
Thousands of fans from across the midwest and beyond make the trip each Memorial Day Weekend to Heritage Park in Forest City, Iowa, for the Tree Town Music Festival. In 2018 the show is expected to supply even more jam-packed, star-studded performances with two stages and nightly performances by some of the biggest names and brightest stars in both country and rock music.
