Keith Urban was hooked on Nashville from his first visit in 1989. Three years later he packed up his things from Australia and moved to Music City to kick start his career.

In an editorial posted today (Aug. 1) in The Tennessean, Urban talks of the importance to keep Nashville’s Music Row alive despite ongoing developers encroaching on the city.

Music Row is where the past, present and future meet, and that’s a vital part of keeping balance.”
