Keith Urban Bio

New Zealand-born and Australia-raised, Keith Urban moved to Nashville in 1992. His first American album came as a member of The Ranch (1997), followed by an increasingly accomplished series of chart-topping solo albums: Keith Urban (1999), Golden Road (2002), Be Here (2004), Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing (2006), and Defying Gravity (2009). He’s sold more than 15 million. His lengthy list of Number Ones—which now numbers fifteen—includes “But For The Grace Of God,” “Somebody Like You” (which was named the top Country song of the decade), “Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me,” “You’ll Think Of Me,” “Days Go By,” “Better Life,” “You Look Good In My Shirt,” and "Sweet Thing."

Urban has been honored with Grammy Awards, Country Music Association Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, a People’s Choice Award, American Music Award, and Australia’s coveted Aria Award. He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2012, and for the last several years, he has spearheaded the "All for the Hall" benefit concerts, which have raised nearly $2 million for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
