"You're always in a different headspace when you make each record, so hopefully they're all different. You just pick up things that you wish you hadn't done on the first one."

  • Born Keith Lionel Urban on Oct. 26, 1967, in Whangarei, New Zealand
  • Keith Urban's self-titled 1999 debut studio album as a solo artist in the United States produced his first hits to crack the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, "But For The Grace of God" and "Where The Blacktop Ends." His next album, 2002's The Golden Road, peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200. "Somebody Like You," a track from that album, was named the No. 1 country song of the 2000s by Billboard.
  • At the 48th GRAMMY Awards, Urban earned his first career GRAMMY for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for "You'll Think Of Me." The year prior, at the 47th GRAMMYs, he made his GRAMMY stage debut with a performance of "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" alongside Elvin Bishop.
  • Urban won the Best Male Country Vocal Performance category four times between 2005 and 2010.
  • Urban was the recipient of the Recording Artists' Coalition Award at the 2017 GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards in recognition of his support for music education. He has also supported Recording Academy programs such as GRAMMY Camp and the annual MusiCares Person of the Year gala.
