Music History Monday: October 26
Today, our Music History Monday post celebrates the life of one of Nashville’s favorite country musicians, Keith Urban!
Keith Urban was born on this day in 1967 in New Zealand. In 1991, he released a self-titled debut album in Australia, where he was raised, and charted four singles before moving to the U.S. the next year.
When Urban arrived in the U.S. he worked as a session guitarist in Nashville, before starting a band, The Ranch, which recorded an album and charted two singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Throughout his career, Urban has released a total of nine albums (one of which was only released in the U.K.) and one album with The Ranch. These albums have produced thirty-seven charted singles on U.S. country charts, of which eighteen have reached number one. He has won four Grammy Awards (all for Best Male Country Vocal Performance: “You’ll Think of Me” ’06, “Stupid Boy” ’08, “Sweet Thing” ’10 and “Til Summer Comes Around” ’11)
We are proud to claim Keith Urban as one of Nashville’s own and celebrate him today!
