During a recent stop at the legendary Grand Ole Opry, superstar Keith Urban flipped the gender perspective of Miranda Lambert's hit single "Vice." Urban, who leads the pack of nominees for this year's ACM Awards, unwrapped a heartfelt acoustic cover, performing only the song's blistering hook. "I'm going to play you a snippet of a song that I love at the moment," he said. "Never played it, so Miranda, bear with me."
At the upcoming Grammys on the Hills Awards (set for April 5 in Washington, DC), Urban will be honored with the Coalition Award for his work with such initiatives as The Academy's Grammy Camp music program and other numerous grant-based education campaigns. "The opportunity to work with aspiring musicians and kids who are just discovering music for the first time really inspires me," Urban said. "Creativity is at the heart of an innovative society — it brings people together and teaches children self-expression, creative confidence and improvisational skills which are essential to their development."
Grammys on the Hill Advocacy Day takes place April 6.
Urban's Ripcord record has spawned several chart-toppers, including his Grammy-nominated "Blue Ain't Your Color," and features the Carrie Underwood-assisted "The Fighter," which recently shipped to radio.
