Four-time Grammy-Award winner Keith Urban adds another #1 to the already record-breaking success of his album RIPCORD. “The Fighter” (featuring Carrie Underwood) topped the Mediabase Chart last week marking not only Urban’s 5th #1 from RIPCORD, but his seventh consecutive #1. This is the first time that Urban has had all the singles from one album reach #1.
“The Fighter,” the last single release from RIPCORD, follows previous #1s “John Cougar, John Deer, John 3:16,” “Break on Me,” “Wasted Time,” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” They extend Urban’s historic consecutive run of Top 10 songs to 38 a streak that began in 2000. He added another career record at the 2017 CMT Music Awards, taking home four awards including Video of the Year and Male Video of the Year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” Collaborative Video of the Year feat. Carrie Underwood for “The Fighter,” and Social Super Star.
RIPCORD is Urban’s ninth consecutive album to be certified platinum by the RIAA. He is one of only two country artists whose 2016 album release reached this certification. Upon its release, Urban made history by celebrating a #1 all-genre album chart position simultaneously in the U.S., Australia, and Canada. RIPCORD has also been certified platinum in Australia and Gold in Canada. Urban is currently working on new music.
