Enjoy Keith Urban performing a tribute medley of hits from Merle Haggard, the Eagles, David Bowie, Prince, and more here!

While celebrating the start of 2017 in Nashville, country music superstar Keith Urban took the time to honor multiple musicians who passed away in 2016. The country music superstar dazzled with covers of Merle Haggard, the Eagles (Glenn Frey), David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, and George Michael.

“2016 has been a crazy year for extreme highs and extreme lows, spiritually, emotionally, and I want to take just a second to give my thanks to a few of the artists that we lost in 2016 and that have left an incredible mark on music,” Urban explained to the audience. “By no means this is everybody, but I put this medley together. If you know any of the words, please join in.”

Even better, Keith Urban’s wife of ten years, Nicole Kidman, graced the stage and helped him perform “Heroes.” Watch the touching medley below!

The pair definitely brought a ton of energy to the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Years Eve in Nashville event. The music world suffered a lot of stunning losses in 2016, let’s hope that 2017 doesn’t follow the same trend.
