Keith Urban of North Island, New Zealand, and Australia inherited a passion for American country music from his parents and by the time he was a teenager, he had won several talent shows and joined a country band. Since then he has not looked back and is one to today's top mainstream Country artists internationally.
In a list of "summer must-haves" he gave to Entertainment Weekly, Item #4 on his list was ..."a 6 string banjo I've had since probably 1995 that I use on all my records. Banjo goes on everything, it's a bit like whipped cream really. Well I guess whipped cream shouldn't go on fried chicken. But it does seem to fit really well on anything that's got a groove. I mean you can play it on 'Hey Ya!' by OutKast."
This banjo is his Deering Boston 6 string you can see in his photo above.
