Keith Urban To Host Aria Awards

Country superstar Keith Urban is set to host the ARIA Awards, the Australian equivalent to the Grammys, for the first time. The Australian Recording Industry Association announced on Monday that Urban, a five-time ARIA award winner, will host the 32nd Annual ARIA Awards, due to be held on November 28 in Sydney. Urban last appeared on the ARIAs stage back in 2007, when he joined John Butler for a performance. “I’m really looking forward to coming home and celebrating an incredible year of Australian music. There’s been so many impressive releases this year, it’s gonna be a tough competition but we get to recognize and honor the best of the best at Aussie music’s night of nights,” Urban said. Dan Rosen, Chief Executive for ARIA said: “ARIA is honored and excited to welcome back superstar Keith Urban to join us in Sydney to celebrate the 2018 ARIAs. To have one of Australia’s biggest stars host this year’s ceremony is just phenomenal. Australian music fans are in for a real treat.” Early this year, Urban released his first studio album in nearly two years Graffiti U, which featured over thirty songwriting, producer and featured guest performance credits, including Greg Wells, Dann Huff, Ed Sheeran, Julia Michaels and more. Urban is also set to embark on the Australian leg of his recently announced Graffiti U World Tour Australia, which kicks off in Newcastle on January 23, 2019.
