Awards. They come and go, and not too many people can remember who won them after a year, much less after 10 or 20. Sure, they’re nice to get and everyone likes to hear their name called at award shows, but there are a lot of other things that matter. Like the fans. Ask Keith Urban.
Better yet, watch Keith Urban.
On Nov. 8, before flashes started popping on the red carpet and video started rolling at the CMA Awards, fans outside of the red carpet fence line had cell phones ready to catch even a quick glimpse of their favorite country stars. But Keith knows who matters most at these shows, so before his freshly polished shoe hit that red rug, he made a dash for his favorite people—the fans.
No, not one selfie. Not even two. Keith went down the line of fans grabbing multiple selfies, hugs, handshakes and kind words. And from the looks of this video, he was loving every minute of it.
And so were those amazing country music fans who stood out in the cold just waiting. They may not have been expecting this, but boy, what a nice surprise! And now when they hear Luke Bryan talking about how good Keith smells, they’ll know firsthand!
Well done, Keith Urban, and props to great country music fans!
