Keith Urban To Release Hallmark Card Collection

Keith Urban has announced plans for a new line of greeting cards as part of the Hallmark Gold Crown collection. The cards, dubbed "The Keith Urban Collection," will be available in Hallmark stores and feature the country star's signature sounds.

The collection includes 12 different cards, each of which will feature 15 seconds of one of Keith's songs. Some songs included will be "Long Hot Summer" and "Sweet Thing."

Urban issued a statement on the new card series, noting his ethusiasm for the hook-up with Hallmark.

"For me, a card, like music, has the ability to make an emotional connection," he said. "I love knowing that these cards, and my music, will mark such meaningful moments in so many people's lives!"

Urban becomes the most recent country star to join the Hallmark ranks, following Taylor Swift.
