Even though Keith Urban is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year at Thursday’s CMA Awards – a trophy he’s picked up three times – he’s not concerned with the nomination. While winning would be great, the newly-minted American Idol judge is most excited about hitting the stage as a performer.
“I look forward to being able to play on awards shows,” Keith said. “That is the absolute moment that matters most to me, is getting to play. ‘Cause the other stuff is, I don’t know about the other stuff. I know about playing, that’s the only thing I know about.”
Keith has been nominated for a total of 25 CMA Awards. In addition to winning Male Vocalist of the Year three times, he’s also picked up the CMA Horizon Award (now New Artist of the Year), Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year. The CMA Awards will air live on ABC on November 1 at 8p|7c.
