Youtube / Keith Urban Superfan
From the very first year of his career, young Keith Urban was tearing up stages across Australia with his upbeat talent. The swoon-worthy singer had a demeanor that was hard to keep your eyes off… even to this day. While Urban has dabbled in a couple different genres, there is one he’s stayed faithful to: country music.
Urban began his solo career in 1990 when he released his first album, Keith Urban. Nine years later, Urban made his American debut. In 2002, Urban released his second album, Golden Road that was home to one of the biggest songs of his career, “Somebody Like You.” Several songs off the Golden Road album flew across the charts, boosting his career. Since then, Urban has been a non-stop star stealing the hearts of country fans across the world.
The year was 1990 and Urban was just beginning to rock his luscious locks as one of his most powerful features. While performing at an Australian Country Music Festival in Tamworth, the young singer performed the hit, “Honky Tonk Rock.” He took over the stage with his electric guitar and mullet for one of his earliest and rare performances.
Skinny jeans, a leather jacket, and a western string bowtie put together Urban’s attire that day. While his spunky stage presence set the perfect mood for the song.
“Honky tonk rock has got the better of me. It’s a little bit of pop with a touch of country. Well, I still wear my studded belt, my hair is spikey on top but I’m still diggin’ the honky tonk rock.”
As Urban ignited the stage with the unique tune, it foreshadowed into his future career. As young Urban would go on to produce songs that had both a touch of rock, pop, and of course, country.
During the latter verses of the song, Urban broke into a quick yodel on perfect pitch. In between his different vocal changes and side comments, Urban can’t stop smiling. He ends the performance with a knee kick toward the audience and they went wild. Little did anyone know, he would go on to be one of country’s biggest stars!
