Keith Urban knows how to move an audience. On Thursday night the entertainer took to the stage in Nashville for the CMA Country Christmas and sung a moving performance of The Christmas Song. The second performance of the evening, the first with the group Little Big Town, the singer had the spotlight to make everyone remember the importance of the holiday season.
In what had to be one of the best performances of the evening, the entertainer simply sat on a bar stool with a full orchestra playing the music while he sang. The stage was set to show off the holiday moment with a fireplace in front as the fans at the Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena looked on.
The CMA Country Christmas shared a look at Keith Urban before his vocal surgery. One of several entertainers who had surgery for their vocal cords, the show gave a glimpse of his music prior to going under the knife. The ABC special has become an annual tradition for country music fans. Mixing the best songs of the holiday with the top entertainers of the charts, it is a perfect combination for the fans.
