Universal Music Publishing Group has recently signed a worldwide publishing deal with Keith Urban. They will be publishing Keith’s entire music catalog world wide.
A press release about the deal said in part, “The first single from Defying Gravity, "Sweet Thing," recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart. It marked Urban’s third consecutive #1 and his 11(th) overall. His first #1 came in 2000, "But For The Grace Of God," and for nearly every year since, Urban has celebrated a #1. Of those that have not hit #1, ten have made it into the Top 5. He has released five original studio recordings, the last three of which have charted at #1. Urban has received two GRAMMY awards for Best Male Country Vocal Performance and five Country Music Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, and the prestigious Horizon Award. He is the only artist to ever have won both the Horizon Award (for best new artist) and the CMA’s top honor, Entertainer of the Year. He has also won four Academy of Country Music Awards.”
Keith’s web site is full of contests, new merchandise, videos, music, news, and of course – where you can catch him in concert. What did we do before we had the internet!
Here’s a clip from this past April, when Keith was Ellen Degeneres Show. It’s a short piece of the interview from that show.
I have to run – it’s Friday… and I have to get this work day out of the way so I can run off and enjoy my weekend! You guys have a great weekend, too. I’ll talk to you all later!
