Just days after announcing his father was under hospice care, Keith Urban is now mourning the loss of his father. Keith’s dad, Robert, died Saturday after a battle with cancer.
In a statement (which has since been posted on his website), Keith said he and wife Nicole Kidman thanked fans and said they have been deeply touched by the "outpouring of love and support" they’ve received.
“His long battle with Cancer is now over and he is finally at peace,” says Keith. “My Dad’s love of Country music and America set me on my life's journey, and shaped so much of who I am today.” Our thoughts are clearly with the Urban clan at this difficult time.
