Keith Urban played a private concert for medical front-line workers Thursday night (May 14) at Stardust Drive-In Movie Theater, located nearly 40 miles outside of Nashville in Watertown, Tennessee.

The show lasted more than an hour, as Urban performed exclusively for more than 200 doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians and staff from Vanderbilt Health (part of Vanderbilt University Medical Center), which has more than 140 locations throughout middle Tennessee and other states. The socially-distanced crowd included nearly 125 vehicles.

 

 

“To all of you guys here tonight, for everything that you’ve done, and continue to do, to all of your families, we say thank you – this concert is for all of you,” Urban said as he took to the stage.

“I did this to say thanks to the healthcare workers who are putting their lives on the line for us every day,” said Urban. “And performing in this environment, with everyone in their cars at a safe distance from one another, seems like an amazing opportunity for everybody to just let go and have fun….and I’m a musician, I HAVE TO PLAY!”
