Keith Urban Meets Fans at Ryman Auditorium

Between 1,300 and 1,400 admirers attended Keith Urban’s annual fan club party Tuesday (June 8) at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Urban entertained the crowd with both old and new songs. Prior to his arrival, 12 ticket numbers were drawn, and the holders of those tickets took the stage before Urban did, making themselves at home in a living room setting. Those 12 fans became Urban’s backup vocalists as they sang along with him. Following the hour-long concert, Urban hosted a meet-and-greet. Jimmy Wayne opened the party with a 30-minute set. A silent auction benefited St. Jude Children’s Hospital. (To view photos from the party, visit the CMA Music Festival page at
