This fall, Keith Urban goes back to the beginning with 20th anniversary vinyl

No Comments

Capitol Nashville CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban will mark the twentieth anniversary of his self-titled, debut album this fall by releasing it on vinyl for the very first time.

The platinum-selling Keith Urban will be available as both a limited-edition lavender LP and on standard black vinyl as well. The record — which originally came out on October 19, 1999 — set the Aussie superstar’s career in motion with the hits “But for the Grace of God,” “Where the Blacktop Ends,” and “Your Everything.”

Keith’s 2009 effort, Defying Gravity, marked its tenth anniversary earlier this year, and will once again be available on vinyl as well. Previously, it was available only as a limited-edition white disc. That version will return, plus a standard black disc as well.

Defying Gravity was Keith’s first album to top the all-genre Billboard 200, and features the hits “Sweet Thing,” “Kiss a Girl,” and “Only You Can Love Me This Way.”

Both vinyl re-issues are set to come out September 13. They’re available for pre-order now.
