This marks the second consecutive time the four-time Grammy Award winner has achieved this impressive milestone, something no other male country artist has done before.
“The 15 months that I spent recording RIPCORD, was one of the most incredible musical journeys I’ve ever had,” said Urban in a press release. “Working with some of the most creative, and inspiring musicians to explore and expand my music in the studio was exhilarating. To now see this music connecting with my audience in this way is an extraordinary feeling – it means everything to me.”
RIPCORD is also Keith’s fifth consecutive album and has already produced Keith’s nineteenth and twentieth No. 1 songs — “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and “Break On Me.” And his latest, “Wasted Time,” has given Urban his thirty-sixth consecutive Top 10 song — wow.
RIPCORD features some of the music industry’s most celebrated and influential musical collaborators from Pitbull to Nile Rodgers to Carrie Underwood and Dann Huff to Jeff Bhasker, Greg Wells and busbee.
