Launa's Favorite Keith Urban Moments From Her Phone

Today is Keith Urban’s 55th Birthday!!  We all know that I love to celebrate anything Keith Urban.  He is one of my favorites.  I have been very lucky to hang out with him a couple of times throughout my radio career.  I have seen him on stage at The Amp, the Hard Rock, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and anywhere he is performing.

Some of the highlights of my career involve times I was watching Keith Urban.  His voice is amazing.  I love his stories and lyrics in his songs, and he’s easy on the eyes.

Here are some of my top Keith Urban moments from my phone.

  • #1 Keith Singing Wasted Time In Tampa

    Keith kicked off his Speed of Now Tour in June right here in Tampa at the Amp. He sang my favorite song Wasted Time.

  • #2 Keith At Ryman Auditorium in 2020

    I was in Nashville back in February 2020 and had a chance to hear Keith sing his new song “God Whispered Your Name” at the Ryman Auditorium.

  • #3 Keith Urban at The Hard Rock

    Keith performed at the Hard Rock in October 2019 and I was right up front like a crazy stalker.  He sang my favorite song “Only You Could Love Me This Way”

  • #4 The First Time I Met Keith Urban

    I will never forget the day – it was October 4th 2013.  The day I first met Keith Urban.

    Not a huge fan of the picture of me…not sure what happened to my hair that day….but this was my first meeting with Keith!

  • #5. That Time Keith Urban Was Interested In What I Was Saying

    This photo was taken back in 2016 when I was backstage talking with Keith about…..who knows.  But he was listening to me and looking into my eyes and that is about all I really care about.  Look at the way he is looking at me?
