Just a year after his father-in-law died, Keith Urban is now going through the same ordeal with his own dad, Bob Urban.
Keith talked to the Tennessean recently and said, “He’s probably only got a few weeks, if that,” “I’ve just been dealing with that the last couple of days.”
It’s particularly sad timing since an exhibit on his career was unveiled at the Country Music Hall and Fame and Museum. “This has all come at a very strange time where it’s typical of a career that has extreme highs and extreme lows all often at the exact same time. So [the exhibit] is bittersweet a little bit because [my dad] is the catalyst for all of this. My dad is the catalyst for me living in America.”
Urban’s father inspired his love of country music.
The singer’s wife, Nicole Kidman, lost her father, the well-known psychologist Antony Kidman, last fall.
As someone who just lost a parent less than 8 weeks ago, I can empathize with what he must be going through. Sending positive thoughts to his entire family.
