Keith Urban was born in New Zealand but moved to Queensland, Australia, with his parents as a toddler. After realizing his potential as a guitar player while still a child, Urban became well known in the Australian music scene for his prowess. He released one record in Australia, before relocating to Nashville, Tenn., in 1992 and working as a guitarist and songwriter. Urban formed the group the Ranch in 1997; they released one self-titled album on Capitol Nashville. Urban’s 1999 self-titled solo American debut produced the No. 1 song “But for the Grace of God,” just the first in a consistent string of hits since then. The country star married actress Nicole Kidman, a fellow Aussie, in 2006 and began serving as a judge on ‘American Idol’ in 2013. He also has his own line of guitars and accessories.
Keith Urban is quickly climbing the charts with his latest single, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16," from his upcoming new album. And, as the song's writers — Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne — explain, each of the tune's titular Johns represents more than just a musician, a farm equipment brand and a Bible verse, respectively.
Keith Urban has already revealed that he is working on a new record, the followup to his 2013 No. 1 album Fuse. But while his fans might be eager to hear new tunes, Urban says that they will have to be patient just a little bit longer.
"I'm In" became a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for Keith Urban in 2010, after he released it as a single from his 2009 Defying Gravity album, but he wasn't the first artist to record the tune.

Keith Urban closed his 2015 Country Jam set with a personal message to wife Nicole Kidman. After a sizzling 90-plus-minute show that included many of his biggest hits, he returned for an encore that began with a festival-wide singalong of "Happy Birthday." Kidman turns 48 on June 20.
