Urban Honored Down Under

Keith Urban will be in his native Australia Wednesday (Oct. 3) to receive the Australian Recording Industry Association’s outstanding achievement award. Urban will receive the award during the ARIA’s annual awards show at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney. The honor recognizes extraordinary achievement by an Australian artist overseas or at home. “What genuinely moves me about this is that it is a non-genre award,” Urban said. “Every performer values it when they are acknowledged for their artistry rather than for just the specific genre of music they are working in.” 10/02/01
