    Wow! Probably one of the coolest things I've seen on Youtube in some time. What an amazing experience this must have been for those up on stage with Keith.

    He does seem like a very cool guy.

    Saw him in Columbus last year.....GREAT entertainer.

    He always brings a couple people up from the audience to sing, a little contest...was funny as heck.

    Richard Marks seems to be in good health also.

    All indications are that he's an A+ class act. Great song-writer, entertainer and guitarist too.

    Saw him at Rodeo Houston a couple of years ago and he was hanging out near the pens before his set watching the rodeo events.

    Definitely seems down to earth.

    He put on a helluva good show as well.

    Saw that show as well Bankston..

    Fantastic entertainer and (seems like) a cool guy you could just hang out with.

    Great video too. Very cool to fly those people out and just have a blast.

    Thanks for posting this link. I think Keith sounds really good considering the surgery wasn't that long ago. Gratitude goes a long way in this world.
    Thanks! :)

    Urban always impresses and this adds further to why we dig him. He's got this everyman quality and he also has a looseness with his talent. The lucky two whojammed with him just watched their stock go up in their hometown. How cool is that!

    "I just want to thank Keith Urban, Capitol Records, Boman Entertainment, and all my friends and family for the amazing support.. This has been a blessing, and an honor to say the least! Time for a drink, and a night out on the town in good ol Nashville!!! Love you all!!!"

    The singer is Patrick Woolam from KC. He has a local band, the Transients, that plays everywhere here and are quite good. He won a YouTube contest along with the gal Guitar player to get to perform with them at this affair....

    What a cool thing for him to do. I liked that he really did seem to be enjoying himself with not a hint of star attitude present.

    Thanks for posting. I enjoyed that.

    Nice! I'll have to admit that I was one of those that couldn't spare the time of day for Keith a couple of years back. I bought into all the hoopla about his just being a 'pretend' guitarist.

    Then one day I checked out a couple of YouTube clips and was blown away. Bought a couple of his albums and was extremely impressed. Now I think he is right up there. Nice guy to boot.

    Just goes to show that sometimes, you just cannot trust the press or the rumour mongers... ;)
