“I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” said Urban. “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from RipCORD, all new production, new cities where we’ve never played …and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!!!”
“I was a Keith Urban fan long before I ever got this music thing going,” said Eldredge. “He is an absolute powerhouse on stage – unlike anyone I’ve ever seen and to top it all off, one of the most down-to-earth people I know! The Ripcord tour is gonna be on fire! Get ready!”
“When I was asked to join Keith on tour, I was floored,” said Morris. “I’ve personally been a fan of his for as long as I can remember. This is my first tour at this level, and I can’t think of a more respected writer, artist and musician to join for it. It’s going to be an absolute blast!”
