Singer, songwriter, musician. Born Keith Lionel Urban on October 26, 1967 in Whangarei, North Island, New Zealand. As a child raised in Australia, Urban inherited a passion for American country music from his parents.
By the time he was a teenager, the guitarist had won several talent shows and joined a country band. His signature style, a mix of rock guitar and country sound, emerged during those formative years. In 1988, he debuted his first album, which enjoyed success in his native Australia. It was time to cut his teeth in Nashville.
Urban's first Nashville band, The Ranch, made a huge splash, and the group released an acclaimed self-titled debut album in 1997. Shortly after, Urban decided to leave the band to pursue a solo career. His talents were quickly recruited by some of the biggest names in country music, including Garth Brooks and the Dixie Chicks.
Keith Urban decided to pursue a solo career in the late 1990s. In 2000, he released his first self-titled solo album. In 2001, he was named Top New Male Vocalist at the CMA Awards. He toured in 2004 and was named CMA's Entertainer of the Year the following year. In 2006 he won his first Grammy. In 2008 he toured and was nominated for Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association.
