Keith Urban may not have been born in America, but he feels just as patriotic as the next American on Independence Day.

The Australia native recently revealed his definition of patriotism.

“It’s common, shared beliefs and identity,” Keith says. “And I think at its core, it’s an incredibly strengthening, vital thing for our people to have, and it’s particularly gratifying in the midst of so much separating of ideas that it can get fractious. And it’s kind of nice that a sense of patriotism can remind everybody of the unity.”

Keith Urban kicks off his Raise ‘Em Up Tour with opening acts Brett Eldredge and Jerrod Niemann on July 12 on Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
