Keith Urban Takes "The Live Ride" With Marty McFly; More TV Appearances Set
December 3, 2010 at 2:55 PM (PT)
CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN visited ENVISION RADIO NETWORKS’ “The Live Ride With MARTY McFLY” this week for an exclusive interview. URBAN talked to McFLY about his new album, “Get Closer,” and how his wife, actress NICOLE KIDMAN, inspired the title of the record.
URBAN said: “My wife, GOD bless her, has really encouraged me to want to choose love, [and] come in closer. At this very moment when I want to pull away, that is exactly the time to come closer ... I have done that and been amazed. ‘Get Closer’ really, I think, summed up a recurring conversation [on the record] about relationships and the importance of getting closer. And so I think it seemed like a perfect title.”
Listen this weekend (12/3-5) to “The Live Ride” for more of McFLY’s exclusive interview with URBAN, plus a quick conversation with KEITH’s CAPITOL labelmate DARIUS RUCKER, who explains the meaning behind “Come Back Song.” The show also features performances by RASCAL FLATTS, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, TOBY KEITH, KENNY CHESNEY, SUGARLAND, LADY ANTEBELLUM and more.

Concurrently, KEITH returned from EDMONTON, ALBERTA (CANADA) on WEDNESDAY night (12/1) after another “Get Closer Moment” with fans that leaked in the days prior to his appearance. As a result of the leak, the event drew an estimated 4,000 fans to the WEST EDMONTON MALL, where they were treated to an acoustic performance and 90-minute CD signing.
In addition, URBAN received a plaque commemorating PLATINUM sales of “Get Closer,” after only two weeks in stores.
