    About Keith Urban

    In 2001, the Country Music Association honoured Keith Urban with its
Horizon Award. That same year, The Academy of Country Music named him top new
male vocalist. Six years and more than 10 million albums later, Urban is a
Grammy Award winner, who to this day remains the only Horizon Award winner in
history to go on to win the CMA's Entertainer of The Year and Male Artist of
the Year, a title he's captured three times. He's had 13 No. 1s, as well as 2
consecutive No. 1 albums. But Urban's reputation as an elite songwriter,
musician, vocalist and virtuoso guitarist is no more evident than onstage. His
electrifying concerts have played to sold-out houses from Australia to Germany
to England to the United States and of course, to Canada.
