In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Keith Urban with its Horizon Award, designating him a talented artist with a bright future. He is the first Horizon Award winner in history to go on to win the CMA's Male Artist of the Year, a title he's captured three times, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year.

Sixteen years and more than 15 million albums later, Keith is a four-time Grammy Award winner, who has also won 10 CMA Awards, 11 ACM Awards, a People's Choice Award, and American Music Award. He's won seven Academy of Country Music Awards, had 20 No. 1s, including 22 Top 5 hits and two consecutive No. 1 albums.

In 2009, Urban was named the year's most played country artist (at radio) thanks to No. 1 hits such as "Sweet Thing," "You'll Think of Me," "Only You Can Love Me This Way," "Better Life," and "Days Go By." In addition, his 2002 smash "Somebody Like You" was named the No. 1 Country Song of the Decade by Nielsen BDS (based on radio airplay and audience impressions).

But Urban's reputation as an elite songwriter, musician, vocalist, and virtuoso guitarist is no more evident than when he is onstage. His electrifying concerts have played to sold-out venues from Australia to Germany to England to Canada and the United States and he's received high praise from critics. In fact, 2009's Escape Together World Tour, as well as 2007's Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy World Tour, were both, according to Pollstar, one of the top grossing tours for their respective years.

In 2016, Urban was selected as one of 30 artists to perform on "Forever Country", a mash-up track which celebrates 50 years of the CMA Awards and rang in the new year by performing at the Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight: New Year's Eve in Nashville.
