Keith Urban Offers Opportunities to Winners of National Talent Competition

Keith Urban will play on a single released by the winner of a talent competition sponsored by the Guitar Center retail chain. Aimed at unsigned artists, the company’s “Your Next Record” contest provides the winner with an opportunity to record a three-song EP with a top producer and have Urban make a guest appearance on the single. The prize package also includes musical merchandise, product endorsement deals and an opening slot at one of Urban’s concerts. “I’m always ready to do whatever it takes to give aspiring musicians the chance to do what they love,” said Urban. “I think we’ve all heard someone whose musical talents blow us away and sometimes all that stands between their garage and an arena is a chance.” The contest continues through Nov. 30. Information is available on the Guitar Center website.
