CAPITOL RECORDS artist KEITH URBAN will be joined by BRANDON GREEN, the winner of GUITAR CENTER’s YOUR NEXT RECORD WITH KEITH URBAN CONTEST, during a stop on URBAN’s “Get Closer 2011 World Tour.” GREEN will fill the opening spot on AUGUST 12th, in KNOXVILLE, TN.
Through the contest, GREEN also received $20,000 in music gear and endorsements from GIBSON, D’ADDARIO, EVANS and PLANET WAVES.
URBAN said, “I’m excited to help give an artist like BRANDON this kind of opportunity. I remember what it was like trying to get breaks and get a foothold in NASHVILLE. To be able to give back a little feels great. I’m just happy GUITAR CENTER asked me to participate in something like this, it’s a really unique experience. And I can’t wait to see how the fans embrace BRANDON.”
GREEN added, “YOUR NEXT RECORD has really helped me to live out dream after dream. Being in the studio with DANN and KEITH, having KEITH perform on my single, and now opening up for him on his world tour, it’s just been one amazing experience after another. The opportunities that GUITAR CENTER have provided me with are just incredible.”
