Keith Urban Is “Grateful’ To Help Kickoff 2013 NFL Season
Like millions of Americans, Keith Urban is anxiously awaiting the return of football season, and tonight, the superstar will ring in the new season in a very special way.
Urban is set to take part in “NFL Kickoff 2013 Presented By Pepsi” at 7:30 p.m with a performance prior to kickoff between the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. The “Little Bit of Everything” singer will perform several of his hits from a floating stage in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
Although his performance will honor the Baltimore Ravens as reigning Super Bowl champions, Urban admits he’s a big fan of his home team, the Tennessee Titans.
“We love watching a lot of football games. Certainly, from all of the years I’ve lived in Nashville, I’ve become a very passionate Titans supporter, and we love Chris Johnson,” Urban shares.
Although his favorite team isn’t planning tonight, Urban is still looking forward to the occasion. “I’m really grateful that we get to be a part of the kickoff for the NFL season. We’ve certainly done a lot of shows now with the NFL. We did a party for the Super Bowl, and of course we did the half-time show for the Thanksgiving game down in Dallas, which was a lot of fun, and we did a kickoff in New York a couple of years back too with Usher and Natasha Beningfield, so I’m grateful we get to go back and be a part of it in Baltimore.”
Fans can tune in to the 60-minute pregame show from Baltimore and Denver tonight from 7:30 – 8:30 PM ET on NBC and NFL Network.
