Keith Urban is a country musician and guitarist who is famous not just in his native Australia but also in the U.S. and the rest of the world for his soul-stirring music. The multiple Grammy Award winner started his musical career in Australia before shifting to the U.S. to try his luck there. Born into a family of music lovers, Urban was exposed to country music from a young age and given guitar lessons. As a teenager, he participated and won in several talent shows. He started playing for a local country band and developed his unique style of music—a combination of rock guitar and country sound—which enabled him to carve a niche for himself in Australia. He released an album and several singles in his home country, which were met with considerable success. Propelled by his success, he moved to the U.S. to further his career. He set off to a flying start with his first band 'The Ranch' and eventually left the band to focus on his solo career. His solo debut album, the self-titled 'Keith Urban' was a smash hit, and there was no looking back for the talented singer. The versatile musician is also skilled at playing the acoustic guitar, banjo, bass guitar, piano, and mandolin.
He was born on October 26, 1967, in Whangarei, North Island, New Zealand as Keith Lionel Urban. He married actress Nicole Kidman on June 25, 2006. They have two daughters: Sunday Rose Kidman Urban (born July 7, 2008) and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban (born December 28, 2010).
