The year already is shaping up to be a busy one for Keith Urban. His fifth studio album, Defying Gravity, is scheduled to be in stores Tuesday, March 31 while May will mark the launch of a North American concert tour that will visit 58 cities. The album’s first single, “Sweet Thing,” gave Urban his 10th No. 1 country single and his newest release, “Kiss A Girl,” is the highest-charting debut of any second single from an Urban recording.
Glen Campbell is a bonafide living legend; a Grammy Award-winner whose music has transcended time. Songs like “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Gentle On My Mind,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “True Grit,” “Southern Nights” and countless others have given Campbell one of the most impressive chart records in the history of country music.
Campbell made history in 1967, winning a Grammy in both country and pop categories with different songs. He has won countless Country Music Awards and Academy of Country Music honors and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. During his 45 years in show business, Campbell has released more than 70 albums which have sold 45 million records.
“Glen will be an incredible addition to the show we’re planning in Vegas,” said Urban. “There’s no doubt that it will be a night where everyone will be able to leave their cares at the door and just let loose for a few hours.”
