Keith Urban Gives A Whopping Donation Of $250K To Nashville Charities Before The Holidays

Keith Urban: “I have a deep-seated respect and feeling for gratitude for the work that all of these organizations do to make people’s lives more manageable.”

Keith Urban’s heart of gold is gleaming this holiday season. 

Just weeks before the platinum-selling performer jet-sets to the land down under for his critically acclaimed Speed of Now World Tour, he gave back to the Nashville community. 

The “Brown Eyes Baby” singer has made a whopping donation to four local charities in an effort to show his appreciation for their “inspiring” work. The GRAMMY Award-winner distributed a generous gift of $250,000 to the Music Health Alliance, the Nashville Food Project, Thistle Farms, and to Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Research

“I have a deep-seated respect and feeling for gratitude for the work that all of these organizations do to make people’s lives more manageable,” shared Urban in a press release. “Their commitment to community, what they do for Nashville, and for others across the country, is not only inspiring, but it shows how much we can accomplish when working together,” he added. 

The singer-songwriter distributed $100,000 to the Music Health Alliance, a nonprofit that provides medical resources to members of the music industry. According to their official website, their vision is to create a “safe and confidential” place for the music community to have reliable healthcare and insurance. 

“Keith Urban’s contribution and passion for Music Health Alliance helps our organization, and the people who work tirelessly on our behalf, to provide funds for life-saving healthcare advocacy and resources that serve vulnerable music makers facing healthcare challenges,” said Tatum Hauck Allsep, the Founder and CEO of Music Alliance. “He’s always supported our community, and for that, we are so appreciative.” 

The vocalist also visited The Nashville Food Project, an organization that fights hunger. Urban placed $50,000 towards their mission to bring people together and alleviate hunger in the surrounding area. Meanwhile, Urban presented the same contribution to the Thistle Farms. The Nashville-based association helps survivors overcome and heal from sex—trafficking, addiction, and prostitution. 

“Secret’s out…we are so grateful for @keithurban’s commitment to food security in Nashville!” wrote The Food Project on Instagram. “We’re also incredibly honored to be in the company of other amazing organizations, including @thistlefarms, @vandderbilthealth, and @musichealthalliance, who also have his support through his work with @cfrelieffund. Our mission relies on interdependent organizations like these collaborating to build a stronger citywide community.” 

The beloved hitmaker also donated $50,000 to Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Research. The heartwarming act of kindness comes on the heels of his participation in the 2022 Cantor Charity Day. Urban hand-delivered the impactful checks on behalf of the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund. 

Just days away from wrapping up his international run, the hitmaker sold his master recordings (Dec. 13) to Litmus Music. The massive deal includes ten albums and a handful of award-winning hits. In the new year, country music fans can catch the Australian heartthrob in sin city. The 13-time CMA winner will hold his Las Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood.
