Just days after his father has passed, the country superstar gets in touch with his incredibly supportive fans...

Following a long battle with cancer, Keith Urban's father, Robert Urban passed away on Saturday, December 5th 2015, just a short time after Keith announced he had entered hospice care.

Keith has often been quoted as naming his father as the catalyst for his success and his biggest supporter through all the years. He even cites his father as the reason for him living in America. 

In a recent post to social media site, Facebook, Keith takes a minute to acknowledge his fans for their incredible support during this difficult time. 

I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic and I, and our family, have received since my...

The "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" singer had a rough go of it the last few weeks with his father's continued decline in health. 

We wish Keith the best. Our thoughts and prayers are with him during this tremendously difficult time. 

Listen to his heartfelt tribute to his dad, "Song For Dad", from the 2002 album Golden Road in the video below. 

LYRICS BELOW

Lately I've been noticing
I say the same things he used to say
And I even find myself acting the very same way
I tap my fingers on the table
To the rhythm in my soul
And I jingle the car keys
When I'm ready to go
When I look in the mirror
He's right there in my eyes
Starin' back at me and I realize

The older I get
The more I can see
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

There were times I thought he was bein'
Just a little bit hard on me
But now I understand he was makin' me
Become the man he knew that I could be
In everything he ever did
He always did with love
And I'm proud today to say I'm his son
When somebody says I hope I get to meet your dad
I just smile and say you already have]

He's in my eyes
My heart, my soul
My hands, my pride
And when I feel alone

And I think I can't go on
I hear him sayin' "Son you'll be alright"
Everything's gonna be alright"
Yes it is

The older I get
The more I can see
That he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
Oh I hope I see
I hope everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

A little more of my father in me
I hope everyday I see in me
In me
In me
I hope everyday I see

A little more of my father in me
