When KEITH URBANpoints his mic at the crowd during a concert, he EXPECTS to hear them singing his song right back at him. If not, he will be very, very disappointed.
He says, quote, "That's like the dream of dreams when you're playing in a cover band six nights a week, doing four hours a night playing everybody's songs but your own.
"I don't know of any musician who doesn't dream of, 'God, one day, I would really like to play my own songs and have everybody sing along. To get to that point now, it's euphoric."
Before he went solo, Keith built his Nashville cred as a session guitarist, surely dreaming about the days when he'd get to record his own stuff. In fact, you may remember him back in 2007 as the long-haired guitarist in ALAN JACKSON'S video for "Mercury Blues". (He shows up at the 0:51 mark.)
