Keith Urban List of Top 10 Hit Songs

Updated on July 1, 2016

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a published author; books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart, there is no other way.

Keith Urban

Another reason for Keith Urban to celebrate!

Keith Urban. A musician with a kind heart and a sparkling personality. Besides being a dad to two daughters, being married to actress Nicole Kidman, Keith Lionel Urban also has made quite a name for himself in the country music industry.

He's come a long way and has made his mark with sensational hit after hit. He's also gained many fans at his latest gig as a judge on American Idol.

With his newest single making the Top Ten on Country Music charts, "Little Bit of Everything" has become his 28th top ten hit and he's now up to 36 top ten songs!

That's an amazing triumph for a man who along the way hit some rocky patches but yet has achieved so much.

As a Keith Urban fan of the past 18 years I'm honored to be able to share this tribute.

I first met Keith when he was promoting his first solo CD "Keith Urban". He was performing in a parking lot for the grand opening of a local shopping center.

There were roughly 30 people in the audience, some obviously not familiar with his music due to their expressions but they caught on quickly. He entertained us to the max and gave his small crowd of fans an astounding concert and left us wanting more.

By the time he began to perform his second song the seats were empty and the crowd were on their feet dancing away. I still have my autographed "Keith Urban" CD from that night and still haven't washed my hand that he shook!

We all have to start somewhere and move on from there. Keith has moved on with gusto!

I've been a KU fanatic ever since. How could I not be? Every single song he has released has been memorable in one way or another. KU is a musical genius by delivering what his audience wants to hear. Yet, he continues to remain humble. He's just awesome no matter which way you see him!

This article is to commemorate his outstanding goal of achieving his many hits that have made the Top Ten.

For a country music artist that's not an easy task unless you have the gift and needless to say the charts speak for themselves.

Quote from Keith Urban regarding songwriting.....

"Songs are like children

in that you have your differences

like the brainy one & the delinquent one

but you love them all the same."

Keith Urban, the thunder from down under, has an aura about him that radiates when performing. I feel that his talent and music is under-appreciated.

I will continue to make noise to be sure he's appreciated by millions of fans!

This is my second hub on KU and I plan on sharing more because I have a strong feeling there will be more to share.

Congratulations and thank you to the man who just keeps on giving his fans the best of him.

Update: Congratulations to Keith for being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on April 21, 2012. I say "It's about time!"

      Haha! I stopped watching American Idol years ago, I tried to watch it for KU, but I just couldn't. I am a fan of The Voice :)

      Hmmmm, well at least "Row row row your boat" would be more country than his last few songs! :) Yes, I know....Keith is a heart throb for the women. By the way, I think he is a great judge on American Idol.

      In addition to Paula's comment...no one can sing Happy Birthday quite as awesome as Keith Urban...well, Marilyn Monroe is a close second. YouTube never lies! Ha!

      Hi Gene, No matter which genre Keith Urban is classified in, I would follow him...and never stop! :)

      Paula 21 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      Gene...psst...a little secret here: Keith is "one of those very special C&W celebrities" who can sing "Row Row Row your boat" and speaking as a woman......we'd be just fine with that. Looking at him is enough....Keith, Blake and Collin.....all dreamboats!

      Gene Johns 21 months ago from Orlando, Florida

      I like Keith Urban, especially in his earlier years. He was never traditional Country, more contemporary Country. In recent years he, like almost everyone, he has drifted more to Country Pop. A great entertainer who has gone over to the "dark side," Country Pop. :)

      I'm not that big of a country fan, but I love Keith Urban. I saw him when he was on tour with The Eagles and The Dixie Chicks, and I was bummed because he only did ten songs. But they were all great. Stupid Boy is my favorite.

    • fpherj48 profile image

      Paula 4 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      OMG.....1174 followers? That's insane.....almost as nuts as YOU are!....now if there is that one person out there, who doesn't "know," they might think that was an insult rather than a love note to a SFAM!

      hey girl.....no need to tell you to have a great day....you got it down!

      Gosh, he's cute. I think that just imagining him singing will help me like all these songs. What's the "cat and sweater" song? Is it "You'll think of me"? I think I mentioned before that I bought a CD just for that song. Thanks for the list! :-)Pinning!

      Yes, Nell I met Keith Urban many years ago, before his career took off. I still haven't washed my hand that he shook. Haha!

      Oh my god I never realised that you had met him? how dumb am I? wow! I do wish we had more country music over here, there is just not enough of it on our tvs. We get a music award program about once a year! and the music in the charts drives me mad, not good like this!

      No one does it like you...I believe I've said that before! I mean it, so I said it again. Keith, oh yeah..he's so damned gorgeous, talented...lovable.......I'm totally jealous of Nicole! Arghhhh!

      Thank you, Linda Sue for all the work and love you put into this!! ....UP+++

      That's fabulous news LaThing! I always enjoy hearing that I turned them on to Keith Urban. He's just too amazing to keep him all to myself and his millions of other monkeyville fans so I thought I would share him with others. Such as an awesome person like you LaThing!:)

      He seems to be very genuine about his fans and the songs I've heard of his are very sweet. And I especially like how good he's been to his wife- that's the sign of a true gentleman. Great hub!
