Well, I never had a page that said anything about me before, so here goes!
I am one of keith urban's biggest fans!! I have seen him in concert about 34 times so far...I have actually lost count! I used to keep track of every show, every city, but we moved recently and I can't find it. Someday, I will find it again and post it here. (update: found it! Posted below!)
My name is Julia and I live in southern California with my wonderful husband, his son and our 2 kitties! We travel to see keith a lot. My husband enjoys keith and his music almost as much as I do!
I started this website a long, long time ago, after I saw keith for the first time. It was right after Love Thing came out and was just starting to be played on radio. Our local country station, KHAY did a free listener appreciation show with keith. It was an acoustic show, just keith and his guitar. I had just bought the cd since we were going to the show. I had seen the Love Thing video and liked it. keith blew us away! He sounded great, his guitar playing was amazing, he was so funny and sweet! He played and played. To this day, I still say that was the BEST keith show I have seen. He did a meet n' greet after the show for whoever wanted to meet him. Well, the line was LONG! He was just as sweet and funny during the meet n' greet! At the time, I didn't have a great camera, so the pictures didn't come out very good, except for the meet n' greet pic, which I treasure! My husband told him that he was "gonna' be HUGE" and that someday we would see him be named "entertainer of the century". He was very flattered.
After that show, we were hooked and started to look for keith to be playing around our city. The last two times I saw keith, he remembered my name! I was pretty impressed! He's always sweet and he appreciates his fans so much. He gives his all on stage every night.
The gang in Vegas, 2001! We called ourselves "Hef's Girls" as keith said he felt like Hugh Hefner surrounded by all these "beautiful girls"!!
