Keith Urban’s Music History
Keith Urban is one of the leading lights in country music today. Born in New Zealand in 1967, Urban has won acclaim for his talents as a singer, songwriter and guitarist.
Urban was to find immediate success with his self-titled debut album, which was released in 1991. Four singles from that album made the Australian chart, but Urban then sought to broaden his horizons the following year by setting his heart on becoming a star in the US.
Beginning his music career in the US as a session musician, Urban then went on to form the band The Ranch. Again, success was quick to arrive, and two of the band’s songs charted on Billboard’s list of Hot Country Songs.
Becoming One Of Country Music’s Biggest Stars
The Ranch had found success after signing to the Capitol Nashville label, and it was on the same label that Keith Urban made his big breakthrough as a solo artist Stateside. The album went Platinum, and one song from it, But for the Grace of God, bought Keith Urban his first tour due to the fact that it became US Number One on the Hot Country Songs chart.
The first decade of the 21st Century was to be a great decade for Keith Urban, musically. He won a Grammy apiece for his songs You’ll Think of Me and Stupid Boy, while Somebody Like You was deemed to be, by the prestigious Billboard magazine, the biggest country-related hit of the whole decade.
Urban’s success seemed relentless, with his 2004 album Be Here featuring no less than three Number Ones. It also achieved Platinum status four times over. In his career so far, Urban has had 16 country music-related Number Ones, and his most recent album, Fuse, was released in 2013.
As well as enjoying a glittering music career, Keith Urban has been a familiar face as a judge on American Idol (he was the first country music star to appear on that show as a judge) and on the Australian version of The Voice. Urban was also a performer at the Live Earth event in 2007, which had the aim of raising public awareness on environmental issues.
Like many music stars, Keith Urban has also had to overcome drug issues in his life, and, in 2006, he used the Betty Ford Center to help him kick his drug habit. Urban is married to the actress Nicole Kidman, and the couple have two children, Sunday and Faith, with a Keith Urban tour kicking off in February 2015.
