Keith Urban, ‘The Voice’ Leads to Difficult Goodbyes

Keith Urban was working in a Nashville recording studio recently and took time out to update fans on a few of his latest ‘Urban Developments.’ In Episode 116 of the web series with that very title, Keith explained that he was at Blackbird Studios working on ‘For You,’ his tune from the ‘Act of Valor’ soundtrack. He also spilled details of his recent Grand Ole Opry appearance, performing ‘Kiss a Girl’ with members of the audience and also treating the crowd to ‘You Gonna Fly.’ (See the video below.)

Keith also revealed that he’s headed back to his Australian homeland for the “battle rounds” of ‘The Voice.’ Having formed his team, the singer says he’s at the point of having to pair up contestants, which means choosing one person over another and saying goodbye to those who won’t be moving ahead as part of his team.

“I’m not looking forward to that, having to say goodbye to people. Not my strongest suit,” he confesses.

Something he’s a little more confident about, as evidenced by the clip, is playing for a live audience and he’s getting prepared to do just that in Nashville on April 10 for the rescheduled ‘All for the Hall’ benefit concert. Special guests for the show, which benefits the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, will include Vince Gill, Alabama, Rascal Flatts, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Little Big Town, the Band Perry, Blue Sky Riders, Diamond Rio, Exile, Lady Antebellum, Pistol Annies, Thompson Square and the Oak Ridge Boys. In past years, Keith and Vince have functioned as the “house band,” performing with every artist.
