Bio

Keith Urban is a New Zealand-born Australian country music singer, songwriter and guitarist who began his career with a self-titled debut album in 1991 before moving to the United States in 1992.

In 2001, the Country Music Association (CMA) honoured Urban with its Horizon Award, designating him a talented artist with a bright future.

He was the first Horizon Award winner in history to go on to win the CMA's Male Vocalist of the Year, a title he's captured three times, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year.

More than 15 million albums later, Urban is a multiple Grammy Award winner, who has also won a People's Choice and American Music Award. He's won a number of Academy of Country Music Awards and had numerous No. 1 songs, including many Top 5 hits.

In 2012, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry. His CD, "Get Closer," came on the heels of his fifth consecutive platinum or multi-platinum release. It produced three consecutive No. 1 singles: "You Gonna Fly," "Long Hot Summer" and "Without You."

In 2009, Urban was named radio's most-played country artist, thanks to No. 1 hits such as "Sweet Thing," "You'll Think Of Me," "Only You Can Love Me This Way," "Better Life" and "Days Go By."

In addition, his 2002 smash, "Somebody Like You," was named the No. 1 Country Song of the Decade by Nielsen BDS (based on radio airplay and audience impressions).

But Urban's reputation as a songwriter, musician, vocalist and virtuoso guitarist is no more evident than when he is onstage. His concerts have played to sold-out venues in Australia, Germany, England, Canada and the United States, all while receiving high praise from critics.

2009's Escape Together World Tour, as well as 2007's Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy World Tour, were both, according to Pollstar, one of the top-grossing tours for their respective years.

In 2013 he joined the reality singing competition television series American Idol as a judge.

Urban lives with his family in Nashville, Tennessee.
