THANK YOU!!! #ACMawards

A post shared by Keith Urban (@keithurban) on

While Urban is thankful for the awards he has earned throughout his career, his main focus remains on his music.

“I’m always trying to do that. Win, lose or draw as far as awards go, I’m already thinking about the studio right now, and eventually putting on another live show,” he explained.

“For me, it’s always about trying to find new ways to connect, and I love country music. I love the massive spectrum of colors that it is. I hope what we eventually get to hear and see is all of its colors represented, because it’s a huge genre. It’s not one thing… I love what’s happening now with all of it starting to get represented.”

Congrats to Keith Urban on his long-awaited 2019 ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year win and listen to his cover of Foy Vance’s “Burden” below !

“Burden” Lyrics

Let me carry your burden
If somethin’ ain’t right I will let you know
Like the paint that’s drying on a heart that’s broke
Let me carry your burden

Get you back on a high when you’re feeling low
When the weight’s too heavy but you won’t let go

Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you awhile
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
No matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
So let me carry your burden
Let me carry your burden

When your mouth’s on fire but your mind is cold
And you’re fanning flames that won’t keep you warm

Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you a while
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
No matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
Let me carry your burden, oh brother of mine

Let me carry your burden
Come tomorrow you’ll be right as rain
It’ll quench your fire, wash away your stains
Yes it will, yeah

Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you a while
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
Oh it don’t matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
I just might see it in another life
I got no dog here in the fight
I could carry your burden, oh brother of mine

I could carry your burden
I could carry your burden
Carry your burden
Yes I can, yes I can
