Keith Urban performing in Nashville for CNN’s New Year’s Eve program was nothing short of AMAZING!
Keith performed a beautiful tribute to some of the most important musicians we lost in 2016.
He began with George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” (which wasn’t aired on CNN, but you can see a fan video below) followed by Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Glenn Frey’s “Take It Easy.” When Keith started David Bowie’s “Heroes,” the crowd went crazy as Keith’s wife, Nicole Kidman, joined him on stage, singing and dancing along to the tribute. Keith finished with a tribute to country legend Merle Haggard, followed by Prince’s “Purple Rain.”
