Keith Urban Earns 20th No. 1 Hit With ‘Break on Me’
Almost exactly 15 years ago, Urban scored his very first No. 1 song with “But for the Grace of God.” The song was his third single and hit the top spot on the charts at the end of February in 2001. A decade and a half later, the country star has achieved a new career milestone with “Break on Me”: In addition to being his 20th No. 1 on the Country Aircheck / Mediabase chart, the track is also Urban’s 19th release to hit the top of Billboard‘s country charts. That feat moves the singer ahead of Garth Brooks with the eighth-most singles to hit No. 1.
“Music, for me, has always been about expression and connection,” Urban says in a press release. “So to have all of these songs connect in the way they have hits me on so many different levels …
“”Break on Me” holds a very special place in my heart for personal reasons, and for the incredible timing of it hitting No. 1 almost to the day of my very first No. 1!” he adds. “Truly divine.”
“Break on Me” is Urban’s second release from his upcoming album, RipCORD, which is set for release later this year.
The artist will hitting the road to support the album beginning on June 2 in Kansas City, Mo., with dates currently scheduled into November. He will be joined on tour by Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris. A full list of upcoming shows can be found at KeithUrban.com.
