Prosecutors have dropped their case against an 18-year-old man accused of raping a 17-year-old girl at a Keith Urban concert outside Boston in July.

The Sun-Chronicle reports the case against Sean Murphy was ended after “extensive” conversations with the girl, who agreed to the decision. Murphy’s lawyers have said the encounter in the lawn area of the venue was consensual. Police say both Murphy and the girl were drinking. Authorities dealt with almost 50 alcohol-related illnesses involving underaged drinkers at the concert.

The Royal Sessions, as well as seven-time Grammy Award Winner, and six-time CMA Award winner, Lady Antebellum, with new music from their highly anticipated upcoming album 747.

Country superstar Dierks Bentley said,

“The core of Country Music is its songs, and the CMA established the CMA Songwriters Series 10 years ago to recognize a really important part of our genre, the songwriters. We don’t typically take the time to thank the songwriters, so collaborating with the CMA and Front and Center was the perfect place — a night with five guys on stools sharing stories, songs and whiskey.”

Keith Urban Releases Steamy New Video for “Somewhere In My Car”

Keith Urban debuted his new steamy music video for his latest single off Fuse, “Somewhere in My Car” today.

The story is what I would call steamy melancholia,” he says. “For me, the video had to be centered around the present and the past, but really focus on the intoxicating reliving of ‘those nights.'”

“And even the sense of being suddenly interrupted by someone adds to the adrenaline rush. Who needs a cigarette?”

Take a look at the risque music video and tell us what you think!

Keith Urban to Debut Video for “Somewhere in My Car” this Week

Four-time CMA nominee Keith Urban, will debut the new video for his latest single “Somewhere In My Car” this coming Thursday, September 25th exclusively at www.people.com/keithurban. The 9:00AM EST debut, followed by its posting on VEVO, will be preceded by the September 24th exclusive premiere of the behind the scenes making of the video on Entertainment Tonight at 7:30 p.m. on CBS in New York City and Los Angeles (check local listings elsewhere) and at www.etonline.com.  You can CLICK HERE to view the 15-second teaser for “Somewhere In My Car” on Instagram.

The video, directed by John Urbano, who also directed Urban’s last video for the platinum-selling single “Cop Car”, is being touted as Urban’s most risqué to date, a provocative must-see. Shot in Cincinnati during his recently completed “Raise ‘Em Up” Summer Tour, the video features Urban ‘firing’ through the song’s powerful guitar riffs and solos, as well as the acting debuts of models Jehane Paris from Miami and Rodrigo Calazans, originally from Brazil.

“The story (of “Somewhere In My Car”) is what I would call melancholy,” said Urban. So for me, the video had to be centered around the present and the past, but focused on the intoxicating emotion of ‘those nights’. John (Urbano) captured it brilliantly.”

“When Keith asked me to direct the video my head started swimming with ideas because the song is so cinematic. I wanted to make a music video where the imagery and song writing felt like they were created at the same time. From the beginning we both wanted this video to be hot with the concept being about how this guy goes mildly crazy thinking about his past relationship. In his mind he’s ‘somewhere in his car’, where he’s having multiple flashbacks that build emotionally with each chorus.”

Earlier this month Urban received FOUR CMA nominations including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of The Year, Album of The Year, for his record-breaking, chart-topping album FUSE and Musical Event of The Year for his duet with Miranda Lambert for “We Were Us”. Urban’s year has also been highlighted by:
