Keith Urban Reveals His Dad Is In Hospice Care & Only Has a Few Weeks Left to Live

Keith Urban has just sadly revealed that his father Robert is in hospice care and only has a few weeks left to live.

“He’s probably only got a few weeks, if that. I’ve just been dealing with that the last couple of days. This has all come at a very strange time where it’s typical of a career that has extreme highs and extreme lows all often at the exact same time,” Keith, 48, told The Tennessean at the Country Music Hall of Fame earlier in the week. “So [the exhibit] is bittersweet a little bit because [my dad] is the catalyst for all of this. My dad is the catalyst for me living in America.”

Keith said his dad inspired him to buy a Don Williams album, which launched his path to stardom.

“I said, ‘How do you know it’s going to be good?’ He said, ‘It’s Don Williams,’” Keith continued. “It hit me in such a way that I thought, ‘I want to make those kinds of records, that people know are going to be solid and they go out and get it.’ I want to thank Dad for starting me on this journey.”

    Nicole was at this Hall of Fame opening even though she’s filming a movie in London. Hopefully, the trolls who feel it necessary to comment on every aspect of Keith and Nicole’s life, will give it a rest during this sad time.
