Summerfest attendees in Wisconsin got a special treat this year, when young duo Dan + Shay joined country vet Keith Urban for a unique performance of his heart string-tugging hit “Tonight I Wanna Cry.”
We already know that the genre's biggest stars hang out together, like Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, who go fishing regularly. But in addition to their peers, country artists also spend time with celebrities from other walks, like acting.
Keith Urban's haircut went mostly under the radar at the 2015 CMT Music Awards, but at the Taste of Country Music Festival, the star was face-forward with a look that proves he's both with the times and in the moment.
On “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” Keith Urban returns to more traditional country themes while continuing to push his sound in new directions. Lyrically, the funky new window to his next studio album is immediately relatable. It won’t need the time songs like “Cop Car” and “Raise ‘Em Up” needed to cook.
The CMA has invited Keith Urban to be the first artist ambassador for their initiative Music Education Matters, as was announced at a press conference during the CMA Music Fest Thursday morning (June 11).
Keith Urban plans to debut a brand new song on the CMT Music Awards Wednesday night (June 10). “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” is the first taste of the followup project to Urban's 2013 Fuse album.
When Keith Urban's recent set at New Orleans Jazz Fest was threatened by rain and storms the singer didn't miss a beat, segueing into covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Who'll Stop the Rain" without the benefit of his band. He's a festival pro, born into an outdoor music scene that included fierce competition in Australia.
A few country stars had a chance to jam with B.B. King over the years, but none got the opportunity Keith Urban had in 2009. The country picker and the blues great led an all-star jam at the Grammys that year. King died at the age of 89 on Thursday night (May 14).
