If You’ve Never Seen Keith Urban’s Epic Tom Petty Cover, You Don’t Know What You’re Missing
One of the best artists in country music today has got to be Keith Urban!
Before you start wondering how a guy from Australia could hit it so big on the country music scene, don’t forget that they have cowboys in the Outback as well.
What you might not realize is that Keith is originally from New Zealand, but moved to the Queensland area of Australia when he was young.
His musical inspirations were all over the place, but rock and country were massive influences in Keith’s unique sound!
Keith’s tribute to Tom Petty’s anthem, “Free Fallin’,” is now the stuff of legend.
This phenomenal cover is over 9 minutes long, and consists of some almost unearthly guitar work by Keith! The performance also features an organ solo, guitar build-ups, and even special parts for the audience to sing along.
This 2004 performance marked an important moment in Keith’s astounding musical career as it attracted so much attention.
