Keith Urban Launching Guitar Collection on HSN
Want to play guitar like Keith Urban? While few may have the ability the singer-songwriter possesses, fans will soon at least be able to purchase guitars bearing his own name and seal of approval.
“Something exciting is coming with HSN! Look for more details Monday on www.KeithUrban.net!” Urban revealed on his Facebook page over the weekend. The cryptic post was accompanied by a picture of him standing in front of a line of guitars on a wall with a sign that read, “The Urban Guitar Collection.”
Urban’s website now reveals that he is set to launch the Urban Guitar Collection on the HSN on Nov. 3. The collection includes two hour-long instructional DVDs, as well as Urban’s first-ever custom created acoustic and electric guitar lines.
Urban has long been involved with various music education programs. His goal is to offer affordable guitars to as many aspiring players as possible. “I developed a passion for the guitar when I was six, and over the years it’s only grown stronger,” Urban says. “I feel so blessed that in this life, I get to be a guitar player.”
The ‘We Were Us’ singer first hinted on ‘The View’ last month that he was working on a guitar collection, when he was joined on the hit TV show by an 11-year-old musical prodigy named Carson Lueders.
“We’re building these guitars, and I want you to be the first one to have one,” Urban said, handing the child one of the first from the collection.
The Urban Guitar Collection will be available exclusively via HSN, HSN.com and via HSN Mobile beginning at 12:01AM ET on Sunday, Nov. 3. More information is available here.
