Watch Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Chris Stapleton Jam at CRS 2017
Keith Urban closed out Universal Music Group's luncheon at the 2017 Country Radio Seminar on Thursday (Feb. 23) with a jam session also featuring Vince Gill and Chris Stapleton. The three showed off their guitar prowess during Urban's hit "Blue Ain't Your Color."
Readers can press play above and below to see short snippets of Urban, Gill and Stapleton's jam. They were the luncheon's three final performances, with Gill preceding Urban and Stapleton preceding Gill onstage. Prior to bringing Gill and Stapleton out, Urban played a medley of songs by artists who passed away in 2016 -- a reprisal of a performance he gave in downtown Nashville on New Year's Eve.
Urban has been a busy guy during CRS 2017, which began on Wednesday (Feb. 22) and runs through Friday (Feb. 24). On Wednesday afternoon, he helped laud Zac Brown with the 2017 Artist Humanitarian Award (which Urban himself won in 2016), and that evening, he played a show for CRS attendees, performing stripped-down versions of songs from his newest studio album, Ripcord.
"Blue Ain't Your Color" and Ripcord helped Urban receive seven nominations for the 2017 ACM Awards — the most of any artist this year. The song is up for Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year, while the album is nominated for Album of the Year.
