PATH TO THE U.S. MEANT TO BE FOR KEITH URBAN
Over 10 years ago, Keith Urban moved from Australia to Nashville to try and make it. He recently told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that the move was "preordained. I think it was all meant to be. I'd been touring quite a bit in Australia, and I didn't want to get too comfortable and too successful there, because it just makes it that much harder to go to the States and start all over again. I thought, 'If I'm going to starve and pay my dues, I'll just go to Nashville now. Of his 10-year "overnight success," he explained, "In Nashville, they just want to see that you're serious and you're committed and you're not just going to come in and carpetbag."
