Keith Urban’s 2014 ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ Tour visits the Boston area with a show Saturday July 26th at 7:00PM at Mansfield Massachusetts Xfinity Center. The New Zealand born and Australian raised country singer and songwriter is touring across the world in support of his latest release ‘Fuse’, his seventh studio album.

His unique talent has brought in into numerous collaborations, such as the Rolling Stones, Alicia Keys, John Fogerty, Tim McGraw, Steven Tyler and Vince Gill, amongst many others. Last year, Urban introduced a new collection of guitars known as the Urban Guitar Collection on the Home Shopping Network, with proceeds going to the Grammy Foundation and Mr. Holland’s Opus Fund. The sale sold out in just a matter of hours

For the upcoming Country Music Awards on June 4th, Urban has four nominations, in two categories, one, collaboration with Miranda Lambert with ‘We Were Us’, and the second for collaboration with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift for “Highway Don’t Care”.

In 2006, Urban checked into the Betty Ford Clinic for treatment due to alcohol abuse. Urban had just released the album “Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing” and was about to embark on a concert tour, when he abruptly cancelled to seek treatment. "I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole (Kidman) and the ones that love and support me," Urban said in a statement, according to People magazine. "One can never let one's guard down on recovery, and I'm afraid that I have. With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome."

In 2012, Urban was selected as a judge for the popular TV series “American Idol”, and continues to remain popular in the country Billboard charts. From his first album in 1988, Urban has reached the pinnacle of country music and highly successful entertainer.
