Yesterday morning, Keith Urban put on a long blonde wig, grabbed his trusty guitar, and performed his No. 1 hit “Wasted Time” incognito outside of Nashville’s Legends Corner. Passersby threw the country music superstar their spare change, some didn’t even realize the scruffy street artist’s true identity.
“We’re just doing something a little crazy on the streets today in Nashville, doing a little busking,” Urban shared with The Tennessean. “We made $8. It’s pretty good.”
Thankfully, one fan captured the mullet-fueled glory on video!
Urban was a good sport and gladly posed for pictures with fans!
Just met @keithurban …lol playing on the corner with his guitar case open in a mullet wig… yeah I like him even more now… 😂 Hey Keith come on over to Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge top floor when you're done. I'll be playing until 2pm! 😉 #SarahMartinMusicOnFacebook #SarahMartinTN #keithurban #itskeithurban #neverknowwhoyoumightsee #Nashville #countrymusic #blueaintyourcolor
That mullet wig has a life of it’s own and doesn’t appear to jive well with baseball caps.
Earlier today, as I went to play at @tootsies_orchid_lounge, I happened upon this sketchy drifter. You know times are hard in the music industry when even @keithurban is busking on Lower Broadway. He's always a class act and looking out for his fans and charities. This is yet another reason why I love this city. #keithurban #BNA #nashville #nashvillescene #countrymusic #musicianlife #livemusic #acoustic #wednesday #music
The footage from Urban’s stint will be played during the upcoming Country Radio Seminar’s ‘New Faces Show,’ which will feature performances by William Michael Morgan, Maren Morris, Jon Pardi, Granger Smith, and Drake White.
If you plan on being in Music City prior to CRS kicking off on February 22nd, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton. The two stars are rumored to be involved in similar CRS-related shenanigans.
Share this unexpected hilarity with other Keith Urban fans!
