Keith Urban Looks Forward to Ending The Year At Home in His Own Bed

Keith Urban may have come away empty handed last night (Nov. 2) at the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards show—nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of Year, Album of the Year and Vocal Collaboration of they Year with Carrie Underwood— but he has nothing to be “Blue” about. The singers current single, “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” is quickly rising up the charts and could possibly garner Keith a fourth consecutive No. 1 from his RipCord album.

“It’s one of the those magical things that when we were in the studio cutting it we all felt that it was something very different to everything else on the record,” Keith tells Nash Country Daily. “I’m glad it finally got out as a single.”

Keith recently kicked off the arena leg of his 2016 ripCORD World  tour in Oct. —which will see him traveling across countries to places like Toronto, Lake Tahoe, New Jersey and New Hampshire and finally concluding in his home country of Australia this Dec.

“We are actually touring through December,” Keith adds. “Carrie Underwood and I are going to go down to Australia and tour all the way up until Christmas. Then I’m back here doing an New Year’s Eve show in Nashville—ringing in the new year right here. [Nashville] is home, I’ve been here 24 years and this is where we live all year round. It’s going to be nice to be in our own beds on New Year’s Eve.”

The Aussie native will be headlining Jack Daniels Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville with rock band Styx, Moon Taxi, A Thousand Horses, Charlie Worsham and the Fist Jubilee singers. Here’s to a great 2017.
