MusicRow sends its condolences to Keith Urban and his family in the passing of Urban’s father, Robert, on Saturday, Dec. 5, after an extended battle with cancer.

“I’ve been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic and I, and our family,  have received since my Dad’s passing on Saturday night,” Urban said in a statement. “His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace. My Dad’s love of country music and America set me on my life’s journey, and shaped so much of who I am today.  Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers.”
