About Keith Urban
Keith Urban has spent the better part of his life harnessing a deep-seated passion for music. This, when combined with his authenticity, talent and driving musical inquisitiveness, helps to understand why he is one of the most successful and well-respected artists in the world. He’s won four GRAMMY© Awards, thirteen CMAs, fifteen ACMs, three AMAs, two People’s Choice Awards and celebrated nine consecutive gold, platinum or multi-platinum albums.
This year begins a new musical chapter for Urban. While his current single “Wild Hearts,” continues its climb on the charts, there’ll be new music coming, some as early as the Spring. And for those who’ve ever seen Urban live, they know that’s when he’s at his best – and in 2022 that’s exactly what they’re going to get.
Finally, the stage that’s stood vacant for nearly four years will be occupied by one of the music world’s best live performers. Urban’s “The Speed of Now World Tour 2022,” promises to be his biggest. It is currently scheduled to play to fans in four countries, including the U.S., U.K., Australia and Canada, on three continents. His concerts have become legendary – as unpredictable as they are explosive. An experience of emotion, musical texture, energy and showmanship.
So, while planning for the tour is underway, there are the songs. “Wild Hearts” is an
autobiographical, fist-pumping, arena-ready Urban track that is as authentic as it is
infectious – quintessential Urban. It comes on the heels of “One Too Many” (his duet with P!nk), the last from The Speed of Now Part 1, which marked his fourth in an historic streak of simultaneous #1 album debuts in the United States, Canada and Australia.
“Speed” produced the top 5 songs “God Whispered Your Name,” and “We Were,” as well as “One Too Many” that not only gave Urban his 43rd Top 10 single in the U.S. and his 27th #1 in Canada. The song also reached #1 on the Australian Artist singles chart, spent 44 weeks in the Top 50 on the UK Airplay Chart and garnered over 100 million Spotify streams in just 10 months.
Since the release of “Speed,” while COVID turned the touring world on its head, 2020 saw Urban do what he does best – make music. He was featured on two songs from Taylor Swift’s album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) including “That’s When” and “We Were Happy,” was a part of the performance of the John Lennon’s “Imagine,” for the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, as well as co- host for the 56th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. He also collaborated with Yamaha for the release of the URBAN Guitar and lessons app.
Urban’s musical virtuosity and fluidity has made him the musician’s musician. He’s
collaborated with a diverse group of artists that include, among others; Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Mayer, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Dzeko, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and Vince Gill.
He’s long supported numerous charities. His “All For The Hall” benefit concerts for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum© have raised over $4.2 million. He is the first Ambassador of the CMA Foundation, an advisory board member at the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and is a longtime supporter of The Mr. Holland’s Opus Fund and The Grammy Foundation.
