Love and Fidelity Get Urban flavour

Who: Keith Urban
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Saturday October 28, 2000

NASHVILLE-based Aussie country music star KEITH URBAN will step off the plane fresh from an American tour with FAITH HILL, before heading to Newcastle at the end of October.

Performing at the Newcastle Workers Club on Saturday, October 28, Urban is riding high on the US Country Charts after his latest single YOU'RE EVERYTHING entered the Top 10.

Urban is the first Australian artist to have a Top 10 US Country song in the charts.

The song comes from his latest solo self-titled album through CAPITOL RECORDS. 'I had gone through a dark period and told my girl to get out of my life, and it wasn't until she left that I realised how much I needed her around,' Urban said, speaking about the song at his web site www.keithurban.net.

'Suddenly I realised that I was wrong, and couldn't see how she would ever trust me again.

'The lyrics are from the point of view of a guy telling a girl to trust him, even though the guy she was with before broke her heart. But the other guy I'm writing about in this song is actually the old me.'

You're Everything follows a Top 20 position for the album's first single IT'S A LOVE THING, which follows a similar theme of fidelity.

'I wanted to say something for the guy who would rather go home to be with his wife or girlfriend than have drinks with the guys,' Urban said.

'The idea came from being in that situation myself and finding out later that a couple of other guys in the group also would have preferred to be home.

'Most guys won't admit it to their friends, but if just one would speak up and say, I'd rather be home, let's face it", a lot of their friends are thinking the same thing.'

TE has two double passes to KEITH URBAN to give away.
