PROVO — Although country star Keith Urban had a hit with the song "Blue Ain't Your Color," the Australian singer has a chance to prove that he doesn't mind a little blue on himself.
Coming to Brigham Young University's LaVell Edwards Stadium this July Fourth, Urban will headline the 2019 Bank of American Fork Stadium of Fire — a first for the 2018 CMA Entertainer of the Year.
Urban, a Grammy Award-winning country artist whose string of hits include "Somebody Like You," "But For the Grace of God," "You'll Think of Me" and plenty of others, found a new fan base when he served as a season 12-15 judge on the then-Fox singing competition show "American Idol" alongside Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. He also coached singers on the Australian version of "The Voice" during its first season.
The Australian singer has been married to Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman since 2006.
Presented by Toyota, this year's Stadium of Fire will also feature actor, producer, martial artist and wordsmith Chuck Norris and the trampoline team Flippenout, as well as skydivers, the Stadium of Fire Dancers, a military flyover and the nation's largest stadium fireworks display.
