Multi-instrumentalist, New Zealand born Keith Urban was raised in Australia. Though best known for his acoustic and electric guitar playing, he also plays 6-string banjo, bass guitar, mandolin, piano, sitar, bousouki and drums. In 1992 Keith moved to America, worked briefly as a session guitarist in Nashville before founding his first band called The Ranch. From 1999 forward, he has had a string of hit singles and albums, and in 2002 he won his first Grammy Award for "You'll Think of Me" from his "Golden Road" album under the Capitol Record label. In 2001 he won the Top New Male VocalistAward at the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Associations Horizon Award. For Keith Urban’s sixth studio album, Get Closer, the singer-songwriter dives even deeper into the explorations of love and relationships that have established him as one of the world's biggest country music stars—while also extending his rock & roll side, as his hard-charging guitar work reaches new heights. The album is the follow-up to 2009's Grammy-winning and platinum selling Defying Gravity, which entered Billboard's pop and country charts at Number One, and spun off five Top Ten hits, including the chart-toppers "Sweet Thing" and "Only You Can Love Me This Way."
