For the second week in a row, Keith Urban will be on US*99 Sunday night from 8 pm - 11 pm counting down the top country songs of the week with Lon Helton and Country Countdown USA. 

Urban is still at his home studio in Nashville co-hosting while also gearing up for one of the biggest weeks of is life! He is hosting the ACM Awards on Wednesday, September 16th, and then releasing his 11th studio album, The Speed of Now Part 1, on Friday, September 18th. 

When asked about hosting the ACMs, Urban told Helton, "I love the fact that they're going to do it.  It would have been easy, under the circumstances, to skip it for a year.  It's the first time it's been in Nashville, first time it's been audience-less, first time they've incorporated three venues, and the first time it's been in September. So it's going to be a unique show."

The country music superstar is also very excited for the world to hear his new music! He said he wrote and recorded so much during quarantine that he actually had enough songs for two full albums, which is why he decided to title this one Part 1. 

He is very stoked about the duets on his album, one is with Erich Church and the other with pop star P!nk!

While counting down the top songs of the week, Urban also shares stories about his friends in the industry including Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Wallen, and Carly Pearce.

Tune in to 99.5 FM or being streaming the countdown on the RADIO.COM app beginning at 8 pm Sunday night!
