As talented as Keith Urban is, he’s also pretty humble. He’s one entertaining guy and he loves sharing the spotlight with other entertainers and artists. Throughout his career he’s shared the stage with friends (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert), icons and even fans. But, some of our favorite performances involve Keith sharing the stage with a legend, singing a legendary tune. It just doesn’t get much better.
6 Times Keith Urban Covered A Legendary Song with A Legend:
1. Keith Urban with Dolly Parton and Vince Gill // “He Stopped Loving Her Today” (George Jones)
Dolly singing George with Keith and Vince as her casual backup guitarists? If you’ve ever had a country music dream– this is it.
2. Keith Urban with Garth Brooks // “Friends in Low Places”
What if Keith joined Garth for the remaining year of his 3-year tour?
3. Keith Urban with Bill Anderson and Vince Gill // “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” (Carter Family)
Whisperin’ Bill saying, “I want y’all to help, too… and if you want to play, I wish you would” is the sweetest. Of course, Keith and Vince are going to play.
4. Keith Urban with Kenny Chesney // “Take It To The Limit” (The Eagles)
Sold out stadium with Kenny and Keith brings out his acoustic guitar?! Don’t worry– it works.
5. Keith Urban with Marty Stuart // “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” (Hank Williams Sr.)
Marty and Keith could probably swap hair stories as well as they swap lines. But, seriously– this is insanely good.
6. Keith Urban with Lady Antebellum // “Seven Bridges Road” (The Eagles)
The harmonies of Lady Antebellum weren’t all that well known in 2009, but Keith wasn’t afraid to put ’em in the spotlight.
7. Keith Urban with Brad Paisley and Vince Gill // “By The Time I Go,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” (Glen Campbell)
And they sang all of these with Glen on the front row watching.
