Keith Urban comes to Summerfest 2015, on June 26. Tickets for his Summerfest show can be found here. Urban has been a force in country music since the late 1990’s. He “earned his stripes” by performing all across Australia, as a country music singer and song writer. He wasn’t afraid to mix a bit of rock and roll into his music, and today, he can still “mix it up” with the best in the music industry.
Keith Urban came to Nashville just a couple of years into his career. The lure of that location was very strong, and Nashville took him in with open arms. By the year 2000, he had his first #1 hit song! It’s titled “But For The Grace of God.” He doubled his hit output with the very next album. Someone Like You and Who Wouldn’t Want to Be Me, both hit the top of the charts in 2002.
Urban wasn’t one to grab the “solo spotlight” just yet. He enjoyed touring with other country stars like Kenny Chesney, and Brook & Dunn. Within five short years, he won the “Entertainer of the Year” award from the Country Music Association. By 2006, he found himself holding a Grammy, and giving an acceptance speech for “Best Male Vocalist of the Year.” His latest tour starts in June and runs through most of September. His stop at the Summerfest grounds will also include opening acts such as Phillip Philips.
