Keith Urban Gets Real About His Family’s Recent Loss


Keith Urban Gets Real About His Family’s Recent Loss

Nothing hurts worse than the loss of a cherished loved one.  

Australian country artist, Keith Urban, has recently lost someone that he has long considered a career influencer as well as a best friend: his father, Robert, passed away from cancer last year.  

This interview on Ellen explains the whole story: Although he had been ill for quite some time, the loss of Keith’s father was heartbreaking to the family.  

Music had always been part of the strong and loving bond that Keith and his father shared; Keith has often given credit to his dad for helping him become the success he is today.


Despite Keith’s grief, he has been persevering in his work, honoring the dates on his ripCORD World Tour and sharing his talent with the world. And, as he explains, the outpouring of the fans’ love and support has helped Keith so much in dealing with the loss.  

He chose to show appreciation for this support toward Ellen’s studio audience with a very generous surprise, and we were astounded!  

It was a wonderful way to honor his father’s memory, as well as thank the fans that have been there for him during this time.
