The newly crowned 2018 CMA AND ACM Entertainer of the Year and four-time GRAMMY Award winner Keith Urban released “We Were” - on May 14th - his first new single of 2019.It comes after the 2018 release of Graffiti Uand his acclaimed “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR,” which played to more than a million fans in seven countries on three continents.It included sold-out shows in the United States, Canada, Australia, as well as Urban’s first European concerts in more than a decade.
He’s had an album simultaneously atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia twice and is the only male Country artist to have achieved the mark even once. He now stands at #8 on Billboard’s All-Time Country Airplay Chart as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart (38) – a streak that started in August of 2000.
In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Urban with its Horizon Award; he is one of only three in history to go on to win the CMA’s Male Vocalist of the Year, a title he’s captured three times, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year, which he’s captured twice. The 2015 CMA Awards brought Urban his third win for Vocal Event of the Year for “Raise ‘Em Up” featuring Eric Church. It marked the first time in history that an artist has received the award in three consecutive years.
Besides four Grammy Awards, Urban has won thirteen Country Music Association Awards, eleven Academy of Country Music Awards, four People’s Choice Awards and four American Music Awards. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Urban’s musical virtuosity and fluidity has led to him collaborating with a diverse group of artists that include, among others; Alicia Keys, Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Meyer, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and Vince Gill.
