Keith Urban Sings With 11-Year-Old YouTube Star on ‘The View’
Keith Urban may have found his biggest fan — and he’s only 11 years old. The singer visited the set of ‘The View’ on Wednesday (Sept. 11), and personally met precocious Carson Lueders, who Urban first discovered singing his song, ‘For You,’ on YouTube last year.
“I’m excited! I didn’t even know I was doing this,” the child exclaimed when he was unexpectedly called to the stage to meet the country star. Undaunted by his celebrity encounter — or performing in front of millions of viewers on TV — Lueders eagerly picked up his guitar to play a song.
“I just learned a little bit of your new popular song, ‘Little Bit of Everything,’ so I’m going to play the chorus for you,” he said, before flawlessly launching into the chorus, with Urban singing harmonies.
That wasn’t the only surprise for the boy. When he was finished, Urban gave him a brand new guitar. “We’re building these guitars, and I want you to be the first one to have one,” Urban said, before handing it over.

Urban is making the media rounds, promoting his new album, ‘Fuse,’ which was released earlier this week. His Light the Fuse tour continues this weekend with shows in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. See all of his upcoming shows here.
