Graffiti U, which upon its debut on April 27, 2018 hit #1 on charts in the United States, Canada and Australia, is Urban's ninth studio recording and follows one of the most successful releases of his career, 2016'sRIPCORD. Graffiti U's latest single "Never Comin Down," follows his 24th #1 "Coming Home

Association Awards, 11 Academy of Country Music
Awards, four People's Choice Awards and four American Music
Awards. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Urban's reputation as a premier songwriter, vocalist, musician and virtuoso guitarist has afforded him the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Steven Tyler, Miranda
Lambert, John Mellencamp, Alicia Keys, Tim McGraw
