Keith Urban‘s pre-fame past is somewhat checkered. He admits to using drugs and alcohol during long stretches away from the stage, but during one stretch — between his work with the Ranch and the start of his solo career — he was a guitarist for Brooks and Dunn. In an interview with Men’s Health, Urban explained that he wasn’t legally able to get any job other than music while in America. The Dixie Chicks also hired him as a player for a short stretch before he released his first single.
