A New Keith Urban Fan is Born...

As a "Cardinal Tradition," for Halloween every year we vote on what my adorable little niece will be for trick-or-treating. This year the Monkey costume won by a milestone. As seen here, I've already begun converting Anna into a Keith Urban fan...she's a monkey...and in my eyes, that represents me as a MONKEYVILLE member and everything I believe in.

Birthday Boy

Some 42 years ago today, the miracle (at least in my mind) known as Keith Urban was born. As you all know, Keith Urban IS Australian, but did you know he was actually born in Whangarei, New Zealand? I think that's your fun fact for the day!

We're All For The Hall

Keith's always willing to put in a helping hand no matter what the need, and last Tuesday's "We're All for the Hall" benefit concert was no exception. Taking the stage promptly at 7:30 central time, Keith put together a star-studded night full of music at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee, having ALL procedes go directly to the Country Music Hall of Fame. As we know, times have been tough and people can no longer afford to support the hall via traveling or giving cash donations. Enter Keith Urban to the rescue! For those of you who watched it online on October 13th, you must admit, it was a great night! After playing an entire 2-hour set himself, Keith then welcomed to the stage Vince Gill and his band. For the remainder of the night, Keith and Vince played backup instruments and vocals for such acts as Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, and Little Big Town. It was simply amazing to truly see what a big heart Keith has and how he's willing to put in so much to save a good thing. Tickets were only $25 a piece (approximately 1/12 of what I usually pay for Keith tickets) and Keith was able to earn THOUSANDS for the Hall. Maybe next year he'll be inducted...
