Random Jam: Keith Urban Once Joined Jimmy Buffett Onstage in the Caribbean for an Impromptu Performance

When the stars align . . . sometimes the music stars align.

Keith Urban shared just such an instance during a recent sit-down with Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown.

As Kix was reminiscing about his fun-loving days on the road as part of Hall of Fame duo Brooks & Dunn, he jokingly noted that he and Ronnie Dunn “screwed up a lot of great house bands out at the clubs” by randomly popping onstage. When Kix inquired if Keith ever found himself in a similar situation while traveling with wife Nicole Kidman, Keith shared a random run-in he had with Jimmy Buffett on the Caribbean island of St. Barts that led to an onstage jam.

“The last time I think I sat in was a few years ago we were down . . . at St. Barts,” says Keith. “And Jimmy Buffett was there, and I ended up sitting in with him for a couple of songs [laughing], as you do. There was a little club that he was going to—it’s a bit of a long story—but he and his wife had their boat there, and they were just on the island for a couple of days, and we ran into them somehow ’cause we were just visiting. And, he was like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna go see this band play. You wanna come with us?’ So, we went with them and then, they called Jimmy up to do a song. So, he got up and did a couple of songs, and the next minute, he gets me up to do a few songs. It was cool.”

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
