If you followed The Voice last year or you’re watching American Idol, currently on Channel 11 and down to the last five, you’ll know that Keith Urban is more than a country rock singer. He’s an incredibly astute judge with a remarkable depth of musical knowledge that shades his fellow judges Jenifer Lopez and even the formidable Harry Connick jnr.
Happily for smoothfm listeners, the multiple ARIA and Grammy Award winner returns to the station, to guest host a series of five hour long shows, starting this Saturday at 4pm. Urban was first heard on weekends on smoothfm in September last year.
From June 14, Urban will embark on his national Light The Fuse Tour Australia, an all-new show featuring first-time performances of new music from his #1 album ‘Fuse’ including the current single ‘Shame’ alongside many of his biggest hits.
‘Fuse’ simultaneously debuted at #1 on the mainstream charts in Australia, the US and Canada on its release; Urban has sold more than 15 million albums globally.
Rohan Brown, smoothfm Program Director said, “We are very excited to welcome Keith Urban back to smoothfm. Keith is incredibly passionate about music and his weekend shows give us a great insight into the songs he loves. With Keith on Saturday afternoons and Olivia Newton John on Sundays, smoothfm’s weekends have never been stronger.”
