Keith Urban Sends a Special ‘Thank You’ to Nashville
Keith Urban recently announced he would headline a concert next month to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame, but he makes it clear the reasons for his generosity go far beyond a simple good deed. For Keith, it's a personal way to say thank you to a city that inspired him when he lived half a world away.
"Coming to Nashville -- that was a time in my life that will always give me a great feeling, because it was really exciting to be a little kid dreaming about Nashville and one day to be driving around here and realizing you're in it," he tells GAC. "I still remember taking some freeway drives wherever I had to go, and when I would come back to Nashville and I would ... see those green signs saying 'Nashville' on the freeway, and I went, 'That's the Nashville.' It took years for that to really sink in that I'm in the Nashville, not some place that has the same name. This is the one, you know?"
