Tickets are on sale now for four-time Grammy winner Keith Urban headlining the Firestone Legends Day Concert on Saturday, May 27, the day before the 101st Indy 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
About Keith Urban
Urban’s career has included 21 chart-topping hits, most recently with current smash hit “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Urban has recorded eight studio albums and is the first male country artist to debut atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia. In addition to four Grammy Awards, he’s won both a People’s Choice Award and an American Music Award and has been nominated for a Golden Globe. He’s also won 11 Academy of Country Music Awards, has had five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums and is a member of the famed Grand Ole Opry.
Special guests Dustin Lynch and Clayton Anderson will fill out the full lineup.
Lynch’s self-titled debut album hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. His lead single, “Cowboys and Angels,” exceeded platinum sales status while earning Lynch a legion of devoted fans. “Cowboys and Angels” became a modern day country classic, ending the year as one of Billboard’s Top 5 Country Songs of 2012. Racking up over 25 million views on YouTube/VEVO, soaring to #1 on the MTV Music Meter and selling 2.4 million digital singles, the Tennessee native brings a fresh combination of traditional influences and edgy intensity to the genre. His sophomore album WHERE IT’S AT, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and has tallied over 750,000 tracks sold to date.
Over the past four years, southern Indiana native Clayton Anderson has managed to do the unthinkable – he’s cracked into country music backwards, independently and with a fury.
Anderson has released three albums, including his brand-new project, Only To Borrow. Recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville, this six song EP was written and produced by Clayton and some of music’s most talented writers, musicians and producers. The album’s first single, “In the Dark” garnered immediate streaming activity online and captured the attention of influential music playlist programmers. Armed with new music and an electric live show, Clayton Anderson is not only here to stay, but a force to be reckoned with.
