No Stopping Urban After Platinum Status. Next up; new Album!
Keith Urban has hit another amazing milestone with his highly celebrated album “Ripcord”. Urban’s latest album hit platinum status last month and has catapulted Urban to the top with some amazing record breaking accomplishments.
“Ripcord” which has spent the last two weeks at #1 on the Billboard country album chart is one of only two country albums released in 2016 to reach platinum status. The other album being Garth Brooks’ “Gunslinger”.
Ripcord’s platinum status has also launched Urban into country music royalty. Every solo album Urban has released (nine of them) has sold more than 1 million copies. Keith is the second artist in country music with nine or more albums, to each reach the coveted platinum or multi-Platinum status.
“Ripcord” is home of four #1 singles: “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, “Break On Me”, “Blue Ain't Your Color” and “Wasted Time” with the 5th single currently climbing the charts “The Fighter” featuring Carrie Underwood.
What's next for Keith? It looks like there is no stopping Urban, he is in the early stages of writing for Ripcord’s follow up. He was spotted in the studio with singer/songwriters; Jordan Minton, Josh Kerr, and Heather Morgan a couple weeks ago. No doubt it's going to be another hit!
Congratulations Keith on all of your success!
