On January 17 Keith Urban took over Nashville’s Exit/In for a pop up show to announce the album of his next album ‘Graffiti U’ and a 2018 world tour of the same name.

He was surrounded by 350 super fans, who braved the cold, standing in line to secure a space for the free show. During the event, what was streamed live on Facebook Urban’s two hour set included his biggest hits along with four songs from the soon to be released album. Kelsea Ballerini also entertained crowds with ‘Legends’ and ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’. She’ll be joining Urban on the road during the ‘Graffiti U’ world tour, kicking off in St. Louis on June 15.


During the impromptu show, Urban welcomed a superfan Ashley onstage to reveal the date in which the tour hits Nashville.

Urban also took the chance to ask her what she was studying, and she said she was a music business major with hopes of becoming a professional country music singer. Then Urban put her on the spot. He grabbed his acoustic guitar and started playing ‘Without You.’ The aspiring artist held her own and wowed the crowd singing harmony vocals with the four-time Grammy winner.

An album release date and full track listing for Graffiti U will be announced at a later date.
