Keith Urban played a very special concert on Thursday (May 14th) night exclusively for first responders at the Stardust Drive-In Movie Theater, about 40 miles east of Nashville. This was the first performance of its kind in the U.S. About 200 doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians and staff from Vanderbilt Health, part of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, attended the show, which lasted for about an hour.
Keith said, “To all of you guys here tonight, for everything that you’ve done, and continue to do, to all of your families, we say thank you – this concert is for all of you . . . I did this to say thanks to the healthcare workers who are putting their lives on the line for us every day, and performing in this environment, with everyone in their cars at a safe distance from one another, seems like an amazing opportunity for everybody to just let go and have fun….and I’m a musician, I HAVE TO PLAY!”
Keith is in the Top 15 and climbing on the country charts with “God Whispered Your Name.” He recently announced his upcoming album, The Speed of Now Part 1, will be released on September 18th.
