Keith Urban keeps moving

The two years Keith Urban has spent listening to good, average and hideous singers auditioning for "American Idol," on which he's a judge, have given him a new perspective, he says.

"It's just a reminder of how fortuitous it is for me to be in this position," Urban said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. "If I'm having a day where I'm having some issues with any facet of my career, I remember that anybody walking through that door [to audition] would give anything for one of my problems right now.

"I'm pretty grateful, anyway, and I live in a place of gratitude," said Urban, who will perform Saturday, Oct. 5, at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.

Urban is promoting a new album, "Fuse," the seventh in the Australian's career. Considering the album, released in September, involved eight producers, "Fuse" is an apt title.

"I'm a guitar player, and I love playing," Urban said. "I love collaborating with all sorts of people. I not only learn about what they do, but I learn about myself and see new things about what I do. That's never more clear than when you work with eight different producers."

The album offers plenty for country fans, namely a duet with Eric Church on "Raise 'Em Up" and an appearance by Miranda Lambert on "We Were Us." But it also includes rock-oriented material such as "Even the Stars Fall 4 U."

"If I were a new artist, I don't think I could have done this," he said. "My record gets perceived differently because it's not my first. It's my particular journey that got me to this record."

Keith Urban will perform 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at Cruzan Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansburys Way, in West Palm Beach. Dustin Lynch and Little Big Town will open the show. Tickets cost $38.75-$73.10. Call 800-745-3000 or go to
