When I saw on this news on Twitter earlier today, I thought to myself, “Surely this means Keith Urban will perform somewhere in the West Village, in Manhattan, not at West Village, Dallas.” I then patted myself on the back for being a worldly New Yorker, laughed at Texas, and went about my day.
Turns out I’m a moron.
Keith Urban will perform a free concert at 7 p.m., Nov. 24, at West Village shopping center in Uptown. According to West Village PR pro Katie Beal, he’ll sing four or five songs in front of Taco Diner.
No word on Nicole Kidman’s attendance, though since both of them are Australian, Thanksgiving probably doesn’t mean a whole lot to them and she might as well swing through Dallas on a random Wednesday, right?
The performance is being taped for Fox’s new American Country Music Awards, which is sure to soon join the Grammys, the CMA Awards, the CMT Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Nashville Songwriters Association International Awards among the pantheon of country music awards.
