Keith Urban shows how to beat the Swipe Up culture in Nash.


There weren’t many moments during Keith Urban’s Friday Night (October 7) speed now Stopping the tour in Nashville where the country hitmaker took one of his songs from his 11 studio albums and presented it to the crowd without interference. Twists and turns from a list of nearly 30 songs helped his two-and-a-half-hour show go by quickly. If you’ve taken a bathroom break or ducked away for a refreshment, you’ve probably missed something you’ve never seen before.

Appearances from Luke Combs and an unknown Lower Broadway honky-tonk singer, plus a tribute to Loretta Lynn, are the moments fans will remember, if only because so many other electrifying highlights are more difficult to describe. The heavy synths on “Kiss a Girl”, the extra tortured lyrics on “You’ll Think of Me” and the extended version of the underrated “God Whispered Your Name” deserve so much attention. But what is there to say, other than those moments were “awesome!” ?

A cut album called “Tumbleweed” (with notes from Ram Jam’s “Black Betty”) set the tempo before Urban and his tight five-piece band played “Days Go By” as if it were the encore. The singer let the crowd know that he was planning to pay tribute to the Lower Broadway honky-tonks’ trip to Bridgestone Arena that night, and an unknown performer named Kayley Green proved his point. How unknown is Green? We couldn’t even find a thumbprint to check the spelling of his name, but luckily our friends on Twitter directed us to its platform.

Few things are more satisfying in life and country music than seeing someone get up to meet for a while, and that’s what she did on “Independence Day.” Martina McBride’s cover is often used to showcase vocal prowess, but Green’s voice added a little chirp without sacrificing power. She was terrific.

The same goes for Combs, who joined Urban on seven songs – and two very extended solo breaks – later. Once again, Urban was happy to step back and play acoustic guitar as the young singer performed his hit “When It Rains It Pours.” Next, they teamed up for Urban’s Eric Church duet “Raise ‘Em Up” before new dad Combs walked off the stage.

Apparently all song came with a wrinkle for those who might have been tempted to check Twitter before the second chorus. The experimental solos during “Long Hot Summer” and “You Look Good in My Shirt” were a fascinating reminder that playing guitar really well is always really, really cool. A John Denver cover led to Urban’s “Better Life.” “Somebody Like You” became the Lion King song, “In the jungle, the mighty jungle…“Some people make a living – and sometimes even sign recording contracts – thanks to their ability to keep a TikTok audience glued to a video for more than 10 seconds, but it’s Urban, 54, who shows everyone world how it translates on stage.

Each of these deviations didn’t work out as well, and if there’s any criticism, it’s that the singer took longer to explain than usual. This writer did take a refreshment break during the part of Urban’s show where he lets his band take the mic (I don’t know what I missed, but it looked wild and amazing, and when I came back there was new energy in Section 106).

Urban took a break during the show’s first hour to pay tribute to Loretta Lynn, who died Tuesday, October 4, at the age of 90. for him, and the singer did not dwell too long on the sad occasion. It was just enough to say thank you, which the local crowd appreciated.

The speed now The tour has nine dates remaining, through Nov. 5 in Minnesota. Ingrid Andress and Tyler Hubbard opened the show with their mix of hit songs, album cuts and covers. It’s Hubbard’s first time opening a tour since the Florida Georgia Line’s debut, and he’s been more than willing to do the hard work of warming up a crowd for the star of the night.
