Keith Urban played a free show in Nashville on New Year's Eve, and during his set he took a moment to grab his guitar and honor some of the amazing musicians we lost in 2016, and it was pretty amazing.

Keith's show was a  part of the Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight celebration, which also featured sets by Styx, A Thousand Horses, Charlie Worsham and more. My aunt and uncle were actually in Nashville to celebrate New Years Eve, but they failed to send me video of this amazing performance. I will try to forgive them for that later.


We certainly lost a lot of amazing star power in 2016. Hopefully the fates will treat us all a little nicer in 2017.
