Last week, Keith Urban’s eighth studio album RIPCORD debuted at #1 in the United States, Canada and Australia, marking the second consecutive time that the four-time Grammy Award winner has achieved that historic milestone, something that no other male Country artist has done. But Urban has outdone himself. For the second consecutive week, Ripcord is #1 on the album charts in the United States, Canada and Australia.
Ripcord, Urban’s 5th #1 album, is already shaping up to what could be his most successful to date. It’s already produced his 19th (“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”) and 20th (“Break On Me”) #1 songs, as well as his 36th consecutive Top 10 song “Wasted Time.” It extends his record-breaking streak as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart – a streak that began in August of 2000.
Urban is currently in rehearsals in Nashville, for his first worldwide tour in nearly three years. Ripcord World Tour 2016 features an all-new production, a heaving helping of some of Urban’s biggest hits and his now legendary, unpredictable two-plus hour performances. It launches on June 2nd, in Kansas City, with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris.
Ripcord features some of the music industry’s most celebrated and influential musical collaborators from Pitbull to Nile Rodgers to Carrie Underwood and Dann Huff to Jeff Bhasker, Greg Wells and busbee.
