2017 will be remembered as a year where we lost so many incredibly talented people. Here in Canada, Gord Downie tops the list that also includes Tom Petty, Glen Campbell, Malcom Young, Chuck Berry, Chester Bennington, Don Williams, Troy Gentry and Chris Cornell, to name just a few.
Keith Urban took some time out of his set just before midnight on New Year’s Eve in Nashville to honour some of those lost with an incredibly medley of their hits. Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun”, Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider”, Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”, Don Williams’ “Tulsa Time”, Glen Campbell’s “Wichitia Lineman”, Montgomery Gentry’s “My Town”, AC/DC’s “Back in Black” and Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin'” all made Keith’s playlist, check it out below!
Having Nicole Kidman and their kids join Keith on stage had to have been a special moment. What an amazing way to celebrate some of the people we said goodbye to in 2017. Thank you, Keith!
Here’s another view of Urban’s medley!
