Keith Urban nominated for three new music industry awards
Keith Urban has been nominated for three more awards.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are a roll when it comes to success this year. 

Kidman has had great success with Lion and Little Big Lies this year, not to mention more movies yet to be released.

Recently announced, Urban has now been nominated for three categories in the upcoming The Billboard Awards. The US awards honours some of the hottest names in the music industry.

Urban, pictured below performing after receiving the Recording Artists’ Coalition Award earlier this month, has been dominating the US music scene lately, in part for his role as judge on American Idol for four seasons, not to mention being married to Nicole Kidman who has also been in the spotlight.

This time he has been nominated for top country artist, top country album for Ripcord and top country song for ‘Blue Aint Your Colour’.

While Keith is already back in the studio working on another album he has hinted he will be touring next year.

The Billboard Awards have a big list of even bigger names up for awards this year, besides Urban.

After winning last year Adele is on the list again for top artist and top female artist, but she is up again tough competition with the likes of Rihanna who has been nominated for 14 awards this year.

Recently touring in Australia, Coldplay, Guns N’ Roses, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band and Justin Bieber are up for top touring artist with Beyonce also on that list.

The Billboard Awards is on May 21.

    Keith Urban is an outstanding artist in every sense of the word. He is so talented and such a sweet and humble person. He deserves so much recognition for his talents, but I don’t feel he gets total 100% support from the Country music association. He should have won Entertainer at the ACMs and he should have won for his fantastic song BLUE AIN’T YOUR COLOR !! Hope he wins at the Billboard Awards!

      Thank you, Gloria, for conveying my exact thoughts…and those shared by i think anyone who’s heard Keith’s music. I’ve read as much after so many music award shows through the years. But you wrote it so well. I always enjoy your comments.

      AGREED 100%. I feel it’s because he is a contemporary country artist and the twangy country artists get more attention from the old country fans and critics who don’t like change. Truth be told, Keith Urban is singlehandedly responsible for tens of thousands of new country fans who have always thought country was too twangy! Read comments on his YouTube videos and you will see people commenting about not knowing country was so good. Of course, you’ll also see stodgy, twangy country lovers commenting about his music not being country–which is very close minded! I wouldn’t be listening to country music if it weren’t for Keith Urban and Little Big Town–they are refreshingly different! Plus, look at all that he has done for country music–All For the Hall, countless free concerts, countless charity work and donations, bringing young talent on the road to open for him and basically jump starting their careers…..

  2. I agree he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves He totally should have won every award he was up for Ripcord was a great album I think because he does take risk he gets punished somehow from the country music association because he refuses to be put in a certain mold Congratulations Keith!!!! Hope you win the Billboard Awards​!!!! Love you!
