Keith Urban Recalls ‘Surreal’ 9/11 Experience On 20th Anniversary

Like most Americans, Keith Urban vividly recalls where he was when the terrorist attacks happened in New York City 20 years ago tomorrow (Saturday, September 11th). He had just played a show in Florida and decided to stay at the beach for a few days of vacation before heading home to Nashville.

Keith tells us: ["I remember that morning. I didn’t turn the news on and I was really grateful that I didn’t because I had a few extra hours before I was aware of this reality that was going on that would change everything. But the beach was deserted, and it was an eerie, ominous feeling in the air and I couldn’t put my finger on it. when we ended up going back to the house that we were renting we put the news on and that was the first time I saw what was happening and I couldn’t take it in. It was too surreal. It was a really, really traumatic time for a lot of people.”] SOUNDCUE (:33 OC: . . . lot of people.)

Keith will be part of Loretta Lynn's Hometown Rising concert to benefit the victims of the recent flooding in Humphreys County, TN on Monday (September 13th) at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.
