Keith Urban has more nominations than any other artist at this weekend’s Academy of Country Music Awards, but being nominated for Entertainer of the Year is particularly validating for Keith.
“I’ve always loved putting on concerts and tours and shows and really trying to put on something that’s incredibly entertaining and engaging, so I probably obsess about that part of what I do equal to making records, for sure,” he says in a statement for his label. “So, to get that nomination, along with the Album at this point, is extraordinary.”
The honor of being nominated for Album of the Year (for Ripcord) is also a big deal for Keith.
“I love making music; I love making records,” he continues. “I really do, and I’m curious and passionate and hungry about where my art can go. That’s really what drives me completely and it’s what made Ripcord.”
The Academy of Country Music Awards air this Sunday night on CBS.
