A groundbreaking album for Urban, RIPCORD marked the second time that one of his albums debuted simultaneously atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia. He is the only male Country artist to achieve this mark, not just once, but twice. It was recently certified platinum and produced Urban’s 22nd #1 song, his 6th consecutive, with “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Thus far, RIPCORD has produced four #1 songs including “Wasted Time,” which moved Urban to #8 on Billboard’s All-time Country Airplay Chart, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and “Break On Me.” It leaves Urban’s streak as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart (38) well in tact–a streak that started in August of 2000.
Urban’s career has seen a long list of groundbreaking firsts and accomplishments reserved for the music industry’s elite. In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Urban with its Horizon Award and the coveted Entertainer of the Year. Urban has gone on to win CMA’s Male Vocalist of the Year title three times. The 2015 CMA Awards brought Urban his third win for Vocal Event of the Year (“Raise ‘Em Up” featuring Eric Church). It marked the first time in history that any artist has received the award in three consecutive years. Besides his four GRAMMY Awards, Urban has won ten Country Music Association Awards, eleven Academy of Country Music Awards, a People’s Choice and an American Music Award and has been nominated for a Golden Globe.
Following the worldwide, breakthrough success of RIPCORD, Urban launched the ‘ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016.’ The tour played more than seventy shows on four continents, in front of more than a million people. Catch the “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2017” as it lands at fairs and festivals in the U.S. (HERE).
