Keith Urban offers fans an inside look at "Better Life," off his Greatest Hits album
In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Keith Urban with its Horizon Award, designating him a talented artist with a bright future. That same year, the Academy of Country Music named him Top New Male Vocalist. Six years and more than 10 million albums later, Urban remains the only Horizon Award winner in history to go on to win the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, a title he’s captured three times.
His first solo album in the U.S., 1999’s self-titled effort, has since gone platinum signifying sales of more than 1 million copies. The CD spawned his first No. 1, the stirring “But For The Grace Of God.” It also established his awe-inspiring prowess as a guitar player with lightening dexterity.
With 2002’s “Golden Road,” Urban moved from a newcomer to a star. His monster hit “Somebody Like You” spent eight weeks at No. 1 on Radio & Records Country Chart, followed by “Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me,” which spent three weeks at No 1.
In 2004, he released “Be Here” and a superstar was born. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart and has sold more than 4 million copies in the U.S. alone.
Last year brought “Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing,” which has already sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. Like its predecessor, the album came in at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Chart. “Everybody,” the album’s latest single, continues to climb the charts.
And now comes another milestone: Keith Urban Greatest Hits: 18 Kids.
Keith Urban Greatest Hits: 18 Kids was released on November 20th and includes Urban’s seven No. 1 smashes, as well as another seven Top 5 hits. His No. 1s have spent a cumulative 27 weeks on top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart. The album also features two tunes specifically for the new disc: a remake of “Got It Right This Time [The Celebration]” with his full band and his take on Steve Forbert’s 1979 classic “Romeo’s Tune.”
