Keith Urban is apparently quite popular with rock artists these days. In May he guested with the Rolling Stones during a show in Los Angeles (where he jammed with Keith Richards and Ron Wood on ” Respectable”). And this past Friday (June 28), he took a turn on stage with another veteran rock artist, Gregg Allman.
And if that wasn’t enough, the appearance took place the Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, one of the nation’s most beloved live music venues and the former home of the Grand Ole Opry.
Keith played with Allman and his band (including Gregg’s son Devon Allman) on a few different tunes, including T-Bone Walker’s classic “Stormy Monday,” “Can’t Be Satisfied” (from Allman’s latest album Low Country Blues), and (during the encore) the Allman Brothers Band staple “One Way Out.”
Urban and Allman also both played (albeit separately) this past April as part of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival in New York.
Keith Urban is currently finishing his new album Fuse (due Sept. 10) and preparing for his Light the Fuse Tour, which kicks off July 18 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
