Check Out Keith Urban’s SXSW Speech

Keith Urban was a featured speaker at this year’s South by Southwest music conference. In a 75-minute discussion and Q&A session, he touched on his musical influences, his feelings about modern technology and how wife Nicole Kidman has helped him try new things.

Here are a few revelations from Urban’s chat:

  • Johnny Cash made him realize he wanted to be a musician at the age of 5;
  • Being married made him better at relationships;
  • Speaking of being married, his wife made him less fearful of trying new things;
  • Social media has its downside, it can make you too self-aware;
  • Sobriety is what helped make him a superstar.

Later on that night, Urban hit the stage for an 80-minute showcase performance at Stubbs. The 16-song set mostly included hits from 2013’s “Fuse” and 2016’s “Ripcord” albums

Urban just announced the forthcoming “Graffiti U” album, but there’s no release date.
