Keith Urban Launching New Album in Nashville Honky Tonks
Keith Urban usually performs in the biggest arenas, but he'll return to his roots for the release of his new album, 'Fuse.' The singer-songwriter and guitarist is slated to perform in three Nashville bars this Friday (Sept. 6) as part of the record's launch.
According to Nashville's Tennessean newspaper, Urban announced the honky tonk "tour" in a full-page ad that ran in the publication on Tuesday (Sept. 3). The musician will take the stage at Legends Corner, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and the Stage, starting at 9:30PM on Friday. The performances are open to the public. Fans can tune in to WSIX for information on how to reserve a spot at Legends Corner, WSM to reserve a seat at Tootsie's, and WKDF to reserve a seat at the Stage.
'Fuse' is set for release on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Urban worked with several different producers for the new project, which he says melds his established sound with some new influences. “It’s been incredibly liberating, creatively, for me,” he says. “I don’t know why that is, because I’ve always been fortunate enough to make the records I want to make. I think just working with other people has just been a really enjoyable thing.”
Urban is playing much larger venues on his current Light the Fuse Tour, which is slated to run through the early part of 2014. Keep up with his upcoming concerts here.
