Keith Urban was born in New Zealand and grew up in Australia. He learned to play guitar at the age of six and by the age of eight, he was winning shows for his talents and also performing in numerous plays in the area. Urban’s father was the one that introduced him to country music and he immediately latched onto it and wanted to know more. Urban’s first album, released in Australia, was something new to their respective music scene and won him many awards but Urban knew he wouldn’t be satisfied until he made his name known in Nashville. After dabbling in smaller groups after the move to Nashville in the early 90s, Urban’s self titled release in 2000 made him the star he knew he could be. He won numerous Country Music Awards for that album and his next two albums have been even more successful. As a newcomer to the scene, Urban developed contacts that enabled him to tour with the likes of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill but after the success he’s experienced, he’s becoming the center of attention and the number one draw. Urban dearly appreciates the acclaim he’s received but he still says his number one goal in writing country music is to reach as many fans as possible.
