Remember When Keith Urban Worked for Alan Jackson?

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Soon after Keith Urban moved to Nashville, he landed a gig doing a music video for Alan Jackson. The famous singer was shooting for ‘Mercury Blues,’ and the part called for a long-haired guitar player. That description fit Urban back then, and since he was still very new to the scene, he jumped at the job, thinking it’d help his career.

During a 2011 interview, Urban recalled a big scene he had with Jackson. He was hoping for something — a compliment, piece of advice, anything — from the famously quiet singer, but A.J. only looked at him, filmed his part and sauntered away. Years later, the two would become friends, but their first meeting didn’t go well. In fact, it didn’t go at all.
