Keith Urban Opens Up On Sobriety At SXSW

Keith Urban opened up about his sobriety during his keynote speech at SXSW in Austin, Texas. He says that he was a slave to drinking, and even took some time to offer some words of encouragement to a fan (Molly, 6 months sober) who told her story during the Q&A session of the keynote. “I wished I had gotten sober many years before I did, but I’m glad I finally got here,” Urban admits. “It has made it possible to do the things I do. I wasn’t at my full potential. I was enslaved, is what I was. It has freed up my creativity exponentially.” Urban also admitted that he is a big Post Malone fan and said that his wife Nicole Kidman taught him how to ‘dare to suck’ as an artist.
