Over the last several years, Keith Urban has become one of the most well-known and well-respected names in the country music scene. He also stands out because he hails from Australia rather than the U.S. South, like the majority of stars in country music. Since he first rose to fame, Urban is no stranger to winning numerous music awards, and it appears as though that trend could continue at the 44th Annual CMA Awards, which will air live on ABC on Nov. 10.
Urban is nominated in the biggest category of all for the 44th CMA Awards: Entertainer of the Year. He is up against Miranda Lambert, who leads the field in nominations, Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum and the Zac Brown Band. Urban won the Entertainer of the Year back in 2005, and he has accomplished much in the past five years to warrant another win. He is also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year along with Dierks Bentley, Paisley, Blake Shelton and George Strait. He won that award in 2005 also, along with winning in 2004 and 2006.
Keith Urban is riding high off of the release of another award, a Teen Choice Award, which he won earlier in August. Urban won the award for Male Country Artist, beating out Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan. Other country stars to win at the Teen Choice Awards include Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum. He will also be given an award at the ACM Honors ceremony on September 20. The ceremony will be held at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and hosted by Lee Ann Womack. Urban will receive the Jim Reeves International Award.
Outside of awards shows, Urban is remaining quite busy with his other projects. He is still riding high off of the release of his platinum 2009 album, Defying Gravity. That album has yielded top singles like “Sweet Thing,” “Kiss a Girl,” “Only You Can Love Me This Way” and “I’m In.” Urban is wrapping up his tour in support of the album, meaning his fans will have to act fast to reserve Keith Urban tickets to one of his concerts. When he is done touring, fans may miss him on the stage, but they will be thankful to learn that he isn’t simply taking a break. Instead, he is said to be working on a brand new album that will be released in the near future.
Many country music hopefuls-or simply those who love country music-would likely love to be on stage like Keith Urban, and now they will have the chance to pretend to be Keith Urban with his unforgettable guitar skills. Keith Urban’s hit song “Days Go By” will be part of the most recent version of Rock Band as part of the Going Country Pack 4. Also on the release are country hits like “What Was I Thinkin'” by Dierks Bentley, “Fancy” by Reba McEntire, “It Happens” by Sugarland, “Hell on the Heart” by Eric Church, “Would You Go With Me” by Josh Turner and others.

Dwarf Essex Rape. A very quick growing variety of rape, which makes excellent grazing for sheep, likewise the leaves make very good salad cooked for the table. It can be sown at any season of the year, but is not quite so satis- factory to use in mid-summer as the cooler months of the year. It can be sown broadcast at the rate of eight pounds per acre and raked in, or in drills fifteen inches apart, when four or five pounds will be sufficient. It will be ready to use eight weeks from sowing if the weather is suitable. It is hardy, and will stand any amount of cold. After it has been grazed it will soon be ready again if the sheep are not kept on it too long so as to eat the buds off the stalks. This will be found a cheap, effective food. Lb. 30c, postage paid; by freight, lb. 20c, 10 lbs. $1, 100 lbs. $8.50. Velvet Bean. The velvet bean, or more properly, " pea," is a vining or climbing nitrogenous plant, growing fony or fifty feet high, and greatly enriching the ground. Plant two or three beans in a place in rows four feet apart and one foot apart in the row. They grow very rapidly. In two months the under leaves begin to drop, and by fall the mulch of leaves is often six to eight inches deep, the vines and leaves standing four feet deep. The growth is so dense that it kills out cocoa or nut grass, Johnson grass or Bermuda. Pkt. 10c, pt. 25c, qt. 45c, postage paid ; by freight, pk. $1, bu. $3. Soja or Soy Bean. This valuable forage plant yearly attracts more attention. It is one of the most nutritious of all vegetable products. For pasturing or feeding as green fodder it is very valuable, and nearly equal to clover for fertilizing. Sow half a bushel per acre broadcast, or a gallon per acre in drills. Large pkt. 10c, lb. 25c postage paid; by freight, qt. 20c, pk. 75c bu. $2-50. ‘ s Teosinite ( Reana luxurians). A gigantic fodder plant, resembling Indian corn, except that the leaves are broader. It is excellent for stock-feeding, either green during summer or dry during winter Sow in May or Tune m drills about four feet apart, using four pounds of seed per acre. Oz. 15c, lb. $1.25, postage paid ; by express, 4 lbs. $4! Winter, Hairy or Sand Vetch. An extremely hardy pea-like plant, which grows strongly during the cool moist weather of late tall or early spring months, remaining green all winter and growing whenever the ground thaws As a cover crop it will prevent the land from washing during winter storms and at the same time enrich the soil by storine nitrogen from the air. It succeeds well on light, sandy soils or thin, poor hillsides, where it would be difficult to secure a stand of clover, and the great advantage of having such land covered during the winter with a dense carpet of running green vines will readily be seen by all farmers, aside from its value as forage. Seed should be sown broadcast or drilled in at the rate of one bushe! per acre. If a half bushel of rye is sown or drilled with the vetch the straw will furnish a support for the vines to run on, making them easier to mow for feed or to turn under with the plow. Lb. 35c, postage paid ■ by express or freight, lb. 25c, pk. $2, bu. of 50 lbs. $6.50. Speltz. Speltz is neither wheat, oats, rye or barley, but sort of a combination of all four. This grain comes from Russia and is a most remarkable cereal. It has been pretty thoroughly tried throughout the northwest and not found wanting for feeding purposes. It is a wonderful ” stooler " and robust grower, frequently yielding sixty to seventy-five bushels per acre. While the grain is valuable for milling purposes, its greatest value is for feeding, for which purpose it is superior to either oats or barley. Sow one and one-half bushels per acre. Lb. 25c, post- paid ; by express or freight, lb. 15c, pk. 50c, bu. $1.50. Canada Field Peas. Canada field peas are entirely different from the cow pea, requiring to be sown during the winter and early spring, and making their crop ready for cutting in May or June. They are in- creasing in popularity, usually making a most satisfactory and large yield- ing early forage crop. They can be sown in open weather during Decem- ber, January, February or March, at the rate of one and one-half bush- els per acre by themselves, or, sown with oats, one bushel of the peas, and three-quarters of a bushel of winter or rust proof oats per acre. Sow- ing with oats is of a decided advantage, as the oats help to hold up the peas off the ground, enabling them to make better growth, and as they both mature together, they make splendid food, which cures admirably as nay or dried forage, which is greatly relished and is most nutritious for all farm animals. This crop also makes a good soil improver when turned under like cow peas or crimson clover. Qt. 30c, postage paid ; by freight, pk. 50c, bu. $1.75.
