VIDEO:  Keith Urban’s Tribute to Musicians We Lost in 2017

Country superstar Keith Urban performed at the New Year’s Eve concert Music City Midnight in Nashville where he included a very moving tribute to the musical giants we lost in 2017.  Urban played a melody of songs that included Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” in honor of Chris Cornell; Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider” in honor of Gregg Allman; Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”; and AC/DC’s “Back in Black” in honor of Malcolm Young.  He rounded out the tribute by playing Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’ in its entirety.
