When artists talk about the biggest night Hollywood, you know its going to be something pretty amazing since these artists live the dream almost every week. But last week, Keith Urban shared a part of that night that was a HUGE deal to him. He was in Nashville (Friday 3/3) to celebrate his song “Blue Ain’t Your Color” at a #1 party held at the Basement East venue. Before Keith took the stage to perform the song, he sat with the song’s writers (Steven Lee Olsen, Hillary Lindsey, and Clint Lagerberg) and talked about “Blue Ain’t Your Color” as well as several other topics. One of the other topics that came up was Keith’s attendance at The 89th Academy Awards in Hollywood on February 26, where he sat with wife Nicole Kidman in the front row. “It was a bit surreal, ’cause I…Yeah, I sat and was in an incredible seat. And, it (was) never lost on me either to have a seat like that. I mean, I’m not in that business, so to land that seat is…I’m very…I’m the grateful plus one that night for sure.”
