It wasn’t a Keith Urban cover band. It was Keith Urban.
After a couple of hours of speculation and a few tweets claiming they “spotted” Urban outside of a Nashville club, it was confirmed– Urban was playing a surprise pop-up show at 12th & Porter in Nashville.
The small Nashville venue was packed even though Urban only confirmed the show with a tweet a couple of hours before he was set to take the stage.
Urban played for over 2 hours and brought a couple of fans up on stage, including a Vanderbilt student celebrating her birthday and Lisa Nicole who sang Miranda Lambert’s part on “We Were Us.” Urban also brought up Steven Lee Olsen to help sing “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” the songwriter’s first No. 1 hit.
To really make it a surprise show, Urban played “8675309/Jenny” and dedicated it to Nicole Kidman, who was in the crowd.
Only Keith Urban. And only in Nashville.
